Germantown/Shelby Park Rail Corridor Area-Wide Plan

Louisville Metro Department of Economic Development in partnership with University of Louisville Center for Environmental Policy and Management (CEPM) and an urban planning and environmental consultant team lead by Lord Aeck Sargent worked with community members and stakeholders to create a brownfields area-wide plan and implementation strategy for the Germantown/Shelby Park Rail Corridor. This project was funded through Louisville Metro Department of Economic Development by a grant from the U.S. EPA Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Program.
