Louisville is creating a long-term transportation strategy that will be included in the state's six-year road plan—meaning the ideas would get funding.

The strategy, called MoveLouisville, will consider every aspect of how Louisvillians may get from one place to another—motor vehicles, bikes, feet, bus or even train.

The process to develop the strategy begins next week with a series of public  comment sessions to get ideas for what, exactly, residents want in a long-range transportation plan.

Considering the City in 2038 Through Vision Louisville

All too often we live life on a single course, taking one thing after another as it comes. It’s rare when we take a break to consider our futures, or to express a vision for what we might become.

As Helen Keller once wrote, “The most pathetic person in the world is some one who has sight but no vision.” The same is true of cities. That is why the current Vision Louisville process is an exciting opportunity to think of what our city could be like in 25 years.

Vision Louisville Gives Mayor Greg Fischer Chance to Tout Local Option Sales Tax

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is inviting residents to share their big ideas at a town hall meeting this week, but the administration has an added incentive—promoting the local option sales tax.

Vision Louisville is a public forum series scheduled to take place throughout the city and is part of Fischer’s 25-year strategic plan.

The mayor hopes to gather 45,000 ideas from citizens over the next 45 days on how Louisville should develop and feel. Among the issues heard at the first public forum held last month were public transportation, quality of life and arts funding.

Many of those and other ideas being shared concentrate on economic development, and mayoral spokesman Phil Miller says Fischer believes any future for Louisville must include a look at the cost of and how to pay for large-scale development.

"Certainly the idea of a progressive Louisville where progressive projects are undertaking is tied very closely to the LIFT initiative. And I think that’s why he thinks it’s important for the future of the city,” he says.
