The Commercial Council hosted its second Agency Leaders Breakfast Series presented by Faulkner Real Estate on April 26 at the Ormsby Three Building in the Forest Green Office Complex. Patti Clare, Deputy Director of the Economic Growth and Innovation Office spoke to a crowd of approximately 50 mostly commercial brokers, developers, and contractors about the City’s 25-year Vision Plan.

Clare shared that the Vision Plan for Louisville was one of the Mayor’s five priorities for 2012. The Plan – which will serve as a guiding document and not a policy document, according to Clare – will focus on the built environment. The creation of the plan is intended to be a process of collaborative effort by citizens, business leaders, and government agencies. The residential and commercial industry will have opportunity for engagement throughout the process. Many members expressed a strong desire to participate in the process, as well as had suggestions for ways to improve upon existing plans of this nature. The Commercial Council and HBAL Governmental Affairs Committee will work on next steps for our engagement in the 25-year Vision Plan and let you know how you can be involved.

The Agency Leaders Breakfast Series is sponsored by Faulkner Real Estate and is held once per quarter in the Community Room of the Ormsby Three Building in the Forest Green Office Complex. The next event is scheduled for August; an exact date is not yet set.
