The Louisville metro area maintains an outstanding national reputation of providing beautifully designed developments at affordable prices, thus directly benefiting the whole community both aesthetically and economically. Safeguarding this reputation is the duty of the Land Development Committee, which meets regularly with government and utility leaders to discuss, evaluate and determine issues that could affect the housing industry’s ability to provide the best product at the lowest cost. The committee has assisted in implementing:

  1. Water service expansion by the Louisville Water Company.
  2. Sediment Erosion Policy developed by the Committee and adopted by the Board of the HBAL.
  3. Regular meetings with leaders of the Metropolitan Sewer District.
  4. Meetings with Louisville Gas & Electric to set policy on temporary service, and other installation issues.
  5. Regular meetings with the staff of the Jefferson County Planning Commission to determine policy regarding the Comprehensive Land Plan.
