Louisville Downtown Partnership was formed in 2013 and is comprised of two long-standing organizations: the Louisville Downtown Management District and the Louisville Downtown Development Corporation.
The Louisville Downtown Management District (LDMD), Kentucky’s first Business Improvement District (or BID), was established on August 27, 1991 to promote the economic, residential and cultural vitality of the core of Downtown. LDMD’s mission has been to promote Downtown’s quality of life by creating a safer, cleaner and more enjoyable environment, providing services that are designed to enhance the physical environment of the Downtown, including improvements for better security, maintenance, cleanliness, and marketing.
The Louisville Downtown Development Corporation (LDDC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the long-term economic health of Downtown Louisville and represents the community’s civic and business leadership. For the past 22 years, LDDC has played a crucial role in bringing together both the public and private sectors as partners in Downtown Louisville’s redevelopment and long-term planning, with LDDC serving as the lead entity in the development and implementation of the Downtown Master Plan.
