Will include more businesses
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 15, 2015) — Downtown Louisville’s Business Improvement District is expanding west of 9th Street into the Shippingport neighborhood, part of a strategic focus to help revitalize the area which is seeing an influx of new businesses.
The district will expand from 9th to 12th streets and between Market and Rowan streets.
Businesses in the area voted to join this district and to pay a slight increase in property taxes for services such as enhanced security and street/sidewalk cleaning.
The Downtown Partnership is the organization responsible for administering the program—providing the many on street enhancements within the district—which was established by ordinance in 1991 and became operational in April 1992 within a 61-block area of the Central Business District.
The mission of the district and the partnership is to promote, market and advance the economic development, business and residential vitality of Downtown Louisville.
