just like every other city.
- Greg Fischer, Mayor of Louisville
Greater Louisville If you’re new to the area, chances are you’ve already discovered that around here strangers aren’t strangers for long. Greater Louisville is a place where people skip the formal introductions and go straight into the kind of heartfelt embrace that makes you feel welcome. In addition to all the natural beauty and cultural offerings the area has to offer, its claim to fame is the hospitable nature of its residents. But it’s more than just a friendly kind of way of greeting each other. Many people say that the hospitality in Greater Louisville flows as freely as the Ohio River. But, while Greater Louisvillians are big on southern hospitality, we’re not afraid to ask for you to get involved either. Whether it’s the school parent-teacher association or a committee that’s working on implementing the mayor’s 25-year vision, we want you to contribute your unique talents and skills in helping to continue to build a community full of creative thinkers who share a contagious enthusiasm for investing the time and energy into making our city an even better place to live and work. Louisville Metro Mayor Greg Fischer believes that Louisville is certainly a city on the move. “We have a vibrant arts and food culture – one that doesn’t just compare well to other cities our size, but competes on a global scale,” he said. “Zagat’s, for example, recently listed us among eight top global “foodie destinations.” But while we have world-class amenities, we don’t have all the hassles of a many major cities. Louisville is affordable and easy-to-navigate. Most importantly, it has a strong sense of place – we’re not just like every other city. From our bats to our bourbon, from the Derby to IdeaFestival, we’re an innovative, entrepreneurial city that’s rooted in a rich history and building an even better future.” Mayor Fischer talks to other mayors from all around the country and he says they envy the area’s rich, local atmosphere. “Today, many cities all seem the same. In Greater Louisville, we’ve got a great mix of global corporations, as well as top-notch local institutions, traditions and events. We’re home to some of the most eclectic and vibrant neighborhoods in
the country – filled with local businesses, innovative restaurants and, of course, friendly people. We’re also building a culture of innovation and entrepreneurialism – where everyone feels empowered to share ideas, start new businesses and share their vision for the future.”
Make a Lifetime of Lasting Connections In Greater Louisville, it’s not just about living in the moment. It’s about making lasting connections that provide stability and a lifetime of opportunities. Whether it’s a new job, a trustworthy friend or simply finding a place to call home, there are plenty of resources to help point you in the right direction, Simply put, Greater Louisville is a comfortable, encouraging kind of place where you can settle down and get up and go at the same time – and most importantly, you can have faith in a bright future. Greater Louisville’s open arms extend well beyond the city limits, into vibrant communities in surrounding areas that contribute to its welcoming embrace.

Housing Home to the second largest home builders association in the country, Greater Louisville is comprised of a broad base of dedicated professionals who are informed about the latest trends, products and financing available to help newcomers purchase, build or renovate homes best suited to fit their needs. Continued low interest rates and a competitive selection of single family homes, condos and patio homes on the market in Greater Louisville offer home shoppers plenty of opportunities to make the American dream come true. According to Home Builders Association of Louisville Executive Vice President Chuck Kavanaugh, the Greater Louisville housing market offers an outstanding array of choices and affordable homeownership possibilities in many different neighborhoods and locations. “Whether you’re interested in living Downtown, in suburban areas, near the Parklands of Floyds Fork or in surrounding counties, there are a wealth of homeownership choices conveniently located to many of the job centers. The area is comprised of a variety of established, long-standing neighborhoods as well as nearly 300 new home developments.”
While other housing markets fluctuate in highs and lows, Greater Louisville’s has traditionally been stable, with home values that hold steady. Chuck emphasizes the difference between the local housing market and the national market. “The housing downturn that affected other markets around the country so significantly had less of an impact here in our area,” he added. Energy-Efficiency, Functional Floor Plans and Creative Spaces are the foundation of newly built homes. Builders and developers in Greater Louisville have demonstrated creative site planning and use of new, innovative home designs to create communities that offer new options for homeownership in the area. Mixed-use developments, energy-efficient building practices, strategic use of green spaces and homes built to be both beautiful and affordable have contributed to putting Greater Louisville on the map for savvy investors and homeowners who want more from their mortgage than just a place to lay their heads.

Economic Climate Investing in Greater Louisville -A Good Deal No Matter How You Look at It
The phrase, “you get what you pay for,” simply doesn’t apply in Greater Louisville. The affordable cost of living, the short commutes to work and lower overhead for businesses are added bonuses for residents who realize a good bargain when they’ve got one. In retail terms, Greater Louisville is the “deal of a century,” and its central location, beautiful landscapes and diversity of cultural offerings make it an ideal place to live and work. Ted Smith, Louisville’s director of economic growth and innovation, believes that value of a place is more significant than the cost of living there. “Louisville is a very affordable city in which to live and operate a business, but I think the most important thing to recognize is the value you experience in living here. People who move to the area from larger cities really appreciate the short commutes to work. But, they are just as impressed by the cultural infrastructure. Louisville is truly unique in that we have vibrant arts offerings that you would normally find in much larger and more expensive communities. One of the things I hear most often from people who relocate to Louisville is how they originally expected the move to be more of a transition, but right away they realize that the quality of life makes it worth staying.”
What Makes Louisville a Good Value?
A Pittsburgh transplant himself, Ted has spent a great deal of time in other cities, prior to living and working in Louisville. He gained his undergraduate degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, his Ph.D from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and conducted post-doctorate studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As a former NASA graduate fellow, Ted has seen his share of diverse communities and working climates. He credits Louisville’s cultural infrastructure and sustainability, as well as its natural beauty, for being a draw for him and many others. “In addition to the culture, affordability and location, Greater Louisville offers a sustainable way of living. We’ve got 100 million gallons of water rolling by our city every day, and our parks and green spaces are plentiful. People want to live and work in a city that can sustain itself and offer natural beauty that’s not man-made.” He describes the versatility that Louisville offers as a draw for newcomers who aren’t accustomed to being able to have so many choices in where they live. “I’ve known doctors who move here and want to live in urban areas so they’re close to where they’re are doing their residency. Before you know it, they’re buying five acres just a few miles down the road and their commute to where they practice or make rounds at the hospitals doesn’t have to be a factor on what kind of lifestyle they have. There are no massive trade-offs here in Louisville. You can choose where you want to live and what kind of lifestyle you want to have.” Ted describes Louisville as an edgy, creative city that is drawing young innovators who appreciate the quality of life here. But most importantly, he, along with many other former newcomers, are simply proud to call Louisville “home.”
preneurs from around the country come together to share innovative ideas that could and do have significant impact. “The IdeaFestival is a shining example of Louisville’s natural state of constant curiosity and willingness to think. That’s our default mode here. We’re always open to new ideas,” Ted added. (Visit ideafestival.com for more information.) Ted knows a thing or two about the power of keeping an open mind and having an enthusiasm for putting ideas to work. In September of 2012, he was named a “Local Innovation Champion of Change,” by the White House through a program that recognizes innovators in various sectors of the economy. Thirteen local government officials were honored for “creating a more open and innovative government through entrepreneurship.” Award recipients were applauded by the White House for having worked to build a better future for their citizens, create jobs in their community while ensuring more efficient and effective government by making information and public data more accessible. “Louisville offers innovative incentives for new businesses, including tax incentives, workforce subsidies and training and helping on the front or back end of financing. An added value, however, is that new investors won’t have to guess how the government operates. There’s transparency in government practices, which is another one of Louisville’s strong points.” Ted said there’s also a new revitalization going on in Greater Louisville that is bringing back jobs that formerly went oversees. He referenced General Electric (GE) which has brought back its manufacturing of water heaters that were previously made in China and refrigerators that were made in Mexico. “I think Louisville is part of a resurgence in the repatriation of manufacturing in the United States.” He also applauded Ford Motor Company for investing $600 million to transform a Ford Louisville Assembly Plant into the company’s most flexible high-volume plant in the world – resulting in 3,100 new jobs. In fact, the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Ford Motor Co. earned the distinction of being named 2011 Economic Development Deal of the Year by Business Facilities magazine. Ted also noted that Louisville is building upon its strategic location by enhancing its logistics infrastructure, citing plans to build two new bridges. “With UPS operating its global air hub in our own backyard and other companies who utilize our rail, river and roads, we are continually looking at ways to build more capacity in our logistics infrastructure every day.”Kindred Healthcare, Yum!

Following are just a few reasons why Louisville is a good investment: • An estimated 5 million people live within a 100-mile radius of Louisville, and 6.8 million people live within a 200-mile radius.

• Louisville is known nationally for its medical breakthroughs, giving the area a strong backbone for its role as a regional health care center and a breeding ground for medical innovations such as the first artificial heart transplant, the first hand transplant and creation of the vaccine designed to wipe out cervical cancer. Greater Louisville is home to 15 hospitals and thousands of quality medical professionals, as well as Humana, Inc., a $20 billion healthcare company. • One of the largest transportation improvements in the nation, the proposed construction of two new bridges across the Ohio River is expected to begin in 2013. The project is designed to improve traffic across the Ohio River and create a network of roads and bridges needed to grow jobs and stimulate economic development.

- The Hughes, 2007 Extreme Makeover: Home Edition recipients
Jefferson County Patricia and Patrick Hughes have lived in Jefferson County their entire lives. While job offers and opportunities to travel and move away have presented themselves to the Hughes over the years, they say that Louisville has been and will always be home. “Patricia was born in Louisville’s Portland neighborhood where our city’s history began, and I was raised in the Highlands neighborhood near the Dundee Loop, an old trolley car turnaround way back when. To sum it up, Louisville is one of the biggest ‘small towns’ in America. It has all of the amenities that large cities do, but with a very nice small town feel, commutes that are really short and a cost of living that is great!” The Hughes have three sons, Patrick Henry, Jesse and Cameron. “All three of our sons attended Jefferson County Public Schools, the oldest of which has graduated from the University of Louisville magna cum laude with a degree in Spanish. Our middle son will graduate in the spring from the University of Louisville with a degree in sports administration, and our youngest son starts his studies in the fall of 2013 at UofL’s Speed Engineering School, one of the finest engineering programs in the country. I was a music major there many years ago,” Patrick said. The Hughes family is an excellent example of how sense of place is prevalent in Jefferson County and how Louisville is a community comprised of neighbors who aren’t shy about helping each other. They were selected by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in 2007 to re-build a home that better suited their needs and allowed their son, Patrick Henry, who was born without eyes and without the ability to fully straighten his arms and legs, to be more indeLouisville is located pendent. Ironically, the family never wrote the show asking for help. It was their friends and neighbors and Patrick’s between St. Louis and college classmates who did it for them without the Hughes knowing. They describe their “Extreme” experience as Cincinnati on the banks life-changing, but it was the response from neighbors that affected them most. “It was like winning the lottery, only of the Ohio River at better, because it wasn’t just me buying a ticket and getting lucky. It was a gift of time and effort for our family from the intersection of three so many of our friends and neighbors here in Louisville, Ky. Thousands of would-be volunteers had to be turned away at the initial sign-up opportunity as every position necessary was filled.” major interstates: I-64, Unable to walk, Patrick Henry has never let obstacles stand in the way of achieving his goals. By the age of two, he I-71 and I-65. It has an could play songs on the piano after hearing them only once. The gifted young musician became well-known in the estimated population of community. His father elaborated, “Because of Patrick’s abilities, he grew up on local television. Many people knew nearly 750,000 and a our family because Patrick entertained at a very early age for different charitable organizations in town. When he metropolitan area topping joined the UofL marching band as a college freshman, he received national attention as would any blind student in a wheelchair might make being in a college marching band. Still, as much as we knew this community loved our family, 1.2 million. we had no idea how much until we were blessed to be part of ABC-TV’s Extreme MakeOver: Home Edition.

The Hughes family would later attend 10 builds for other families in other towns across America and they said the crew from the TV show always raved about the response and willingness of people to help here in Louisville. Currently, Patrick Henry and his dad tour the country sharing their story of overcoming obstacles, breaking barriers. The Hughes family’s story is reflective of the strong sense of community that prevails in Jefferson County. The neighborhood feel is evident as people gather together in parks (and there’s plenty of them), socialize at festivals, cheer on their teams, go for a night on the town and come together to celebrate Derby each year. With a diverse living and working environment that is committed to building a bright future together, Jefferson County is a unique blend of sophistication and metropolitan style with hometown pride and southern hospitality mixed in. Don’t be surprised if you see Diane Sawyer, Muhammad Ali or Colonel Sanders hanging out around town, literally. Larger-than-life murals of Louisville native celebrities hang on numerous buildings throughout Jefferson County, serving as inspiration for future hometown heroes in-the-making. Even if you’re not a celebrity, residents graciously welcome newcomers with invitations to be part of the community. Looeyville... Looavul ... Lewisville ... No matter how you say it, Louisville offers a safe, welcoming environment that will make you feel right at home.

Having run a successful interior design business for many years, the couple decided to renovate a historic building in downtown Shelbyville into a restaurant, properly naming it Bell House, where an 1800’s fire bell rests (and rings) on the front lawn. According to the Andriots, the Bell House is a symbol of the passion that many people from Shelby County have for their community. They credit location, small town atmosphere, strong church communities and excellent schools and parks for drawing in newcomers. “The smaller community has a great appeal to a lot of families, and there’s easy access to the larger markets. You feel safe here. In a nutshell, it’s just a good place to call home,” Bobby said. He and Sue encourage newcomers to stroll through the historic district to get a true flavor of the area. Along with the Bell House, Shelby County’s dining scene includes restaurants that serve elegant southern hospitality and good old-fashioned home cooking in their own unique ways.

The idea to build a club where Cardinal fans could come together to share their passion for golf was conceived in 1998. After a few years of nurturing and construction, the Cardinal Club opened to rave reviews in October 2001. Since that first round was played, the Cardinal Club has been a special place. It’s a family oriented club where you’ll always find a friendly smile waiting to greet you.

Bullitt County In Bullitt County, you’ll discover a wealth of opportunities in a place where quality of life is valued and history and agriculture are celebrated. (And, you might also find a great deal on designer shoes while you’re there.) Located just a few minutes from the big city, Bullitt County is a vibrant, growing community where jobs are being created and residents celebrate a relaxed pace of life with all the modern conveniences of a metropolitan area that’s practically in their backyard. Whitney Wurzel is a Bullitt County native. She met her husband, Casey Hammett, in South Carolina, and the husband and wife duo both work at Bernheim Aboretum and Research Forest, one of the area’s beloved agricultural gems. They’ve lived in Bullitt County together for three years. Bernheim includes more than 35 miles of hiking trails that translate stories of central Kentucky’s native plants and animals. A wide variety of programs and special events are held there that celebrate nature and promote healthy lifestyles. Casey is a horticulturist and Whitney is an education manager there. Like many people who live in Bullitt County, they value the peaceful beauty of the area as well as the short commute to Louisville. “Living and working in the Clermont area, we enjoy a sense of rural tranquility that can be lost in a big city. There, among the rolling knobs, we often walk our dogs at Bernheim, meet friends at Forest Edge Winery, and take long drives on country roads that once served as bison trails,” Whitney said. In addition to Bernheim, visitors flock to Bullitt County to sample more than just the beautiful scenery. Casey elaborated, “The gateway to Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail begins right here in Bullitt County, so visiting the Jim Beam American Stillhouse is a must. Becoming familiar with shopping venues frequented by locals is also recommended, including the 6pm.com Outlet, the World’s Most Awesome Flea Market and various antique shops.” Whitney and Casey said they’re never at a loss for something to do, and they don’t have to make the short drive to Louisville to have a good time. “Bullitt County has long offered a unique combination of places and pastimes for residents to enjoy. In one day, a person could observe glass blowing at Hawk’s View Art Gallery, cruise around the longest go-kart track in the world at Kart Kountry and do some toetapping at the Shepherdsville Country Music Show. The possibilities go on and on,” Whitney added. Located strategically along Interstate 65, Bullitt County is home to nationally-recognized success stories, including Gordon Food Services, Zappos, Publisher’s Printing Company and Best Buy’s Geek Squad City, among others.

Just 30 minutes west of Louisville, you can canoe a river, hike a mountain or explore a cave. Harrison County is a place where a trip to Emery’s Ice Cream Shop and Butt Drugs will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your taste for nostalgia. It’s a beautiful rural escape, where winding scenic roads give plenty of reasons to take a drive or feed the alpacas at Flatwoods Farm.

As the historic site of the only Civil War battle fought on Indiana soil, Corydon combines nature with history in its Battle of Corydon Memorial Park.

Icon Metal Forming, Lucas Oil and Tyson Foods are major employers, as is Harrison County Hospital. Downtown Corydon is an entertaining and appetizing lesson in history. As the original capitol of Indiana, many historic buildings and sites encourage visitors to step back in time and enjoy a slower pace of life. Antique shops, quaint boutiques and wonderful restaurants make Corydon a “must-experience” town in Southern Indiana. The Corydon Jamboree held on Saturday nights and the Hayswood Community Theater showcase the town’s hospitable nature and quest for a good time shared among friends.

Mark Sieckman, spokesman for the Kentucky Science Center, describes how museums serve as valuable resources that contribute not only to the present, but to the future of the area. “The Kentucky Science Center works with families and schools of all ages to encourage science literacy to better prepare our community to meet the needs and jobs of the 21st Century.

Art Scene Louisville’s art community is hopping, especially on the weekends.

Scooter Davidson, executive director of sales and marketing for the Mellwood Arts Center is a graduate of Parson’s School of Design and a former resident of New York City for 23 years. She said she finds the Louisville art scene just as diverse, rich and interesting as The Big Apple. “It’s almost better, as the artists are more accessible with their smaller city friendliness and dedication to their work, and the area actually has a better professional craft contingency than New York.” Scooter credits former First Lady of Kentucky Phyllis George Brown (who’s also a former Miss America) for putting Kentucky on the national map with The Market – Kentucky Crafted, now in its 30th year. “ Newcomers will find sophisticated, international, yet affordable, and accessible art and artists all over town, not just Downtown. There are artworks in restaurants and hotels that are original pieces as well,” she added.

Parks & Recreation Louisville’s “greenprint” is blooming through the highly-acclaimed City of Parks initiative, one of the largest urban parks expansion projects in America that will enhance the community’s already impressive green spaces. The City of Parks initiative guarantees even more wonderful parkland for current and future residents of Louisville. Building upon more than 14,000 acres of existing parks, City of Parks is heralded as one of the largest urban expansion projects in America and includes the Parklands of Floyds Fork, an expansion of park land in Jefferson Memorial Forest and Southwest Louisville Metro, a paved Louisville Loop shared-use path and new outdoor recreation and nature education programs. Scott Martin, director of 21st Century Parks, Inc., described how Greater Louisville is unique from other areas, “From the Olmsted-designed parks that define our densest populated neighborhoods, the Jefferson Memorial Forest – the nation’s largest urban forest reserve, Waterfront Park and its powerful statement of a revitalized connection between the Ohio River and downtown, to emerging parks like The Parklands on the urban edge, Louisville has a world-class park system that is unique for any midwest urban center.” Scott expanded on how Louisville’s parks play a role in helping families get settled into the area. “Public parks are Louisville’s family room.The number of Louisvilleans that come up to me and tell me how they met their spouse at a park, met their best friends during a park activity or who learned how to identify local trees on a nature walk in a park is remarkable. Excellent public parks make great communities possible. The trick we’ve learned is that this is only possible when parks are built in anticipation of future community development. No other city in the nation will open this many new acres of new public parks over the next five years. This is quite literally the golden age for public park development in Louisville.”
