Working Group Activity 1: Right-sizing the Challenge

All

 

Public Safety Challenge:
Like many communities, we have seen a spike in violent crime over the past few years. While we have seen recent progress, we need to reduce violent crime in Louisville.

 

Transportation / Mobility Challenge:
In order to reduce Louisville’s vehicular miles traveled (VMT), we need to become less car dependent and start using alternative modes of transportation such as transit, biking and walking, especially for shorter trips.

 

Telecom / Digital Inclusion Challenge:
A significant portion our residents do not have the digital access and tools they need at home to thrive in the modern world.
