The Louisville Downtown Partnership is an example of how an economic development organization can bring private and public sector interests together, make them stronger, and the result is a better Downtown, a better economy, and a greater Louisville.

Your operation not only favorably impacts Downtown Louisville when you're finished with one of your jobs, it also favorably impacts Louisville while you're doing a job because of the way it is done. Keep up the good work. We appreciate all of you!

LDP’s role as an independent economic and planning organization has allowed it to develop a body of knowledge on how to assemble the right partners, the right opportunity and the right environment to allow projects to develop and thrive.
