Louisville Survey Central & South Report

 Accession — Box: Originals of items filed in Louisville reference files
Identifier: 1973_632-UA

Content Description

One of a series of survey reports produced under the supervision of the City of Louisville's Landmarks Commission. This volume is a companion to the Louisville Survey West, and the Louisville Survey East. The goal was to examine every blockface in the city, looking at its "environmental quality, general condition, and architectural quality regardless of age." The reports were intended for use in planning, both citywide and at the neighborhood level. The effort appears to have been spurred by the institution of block grants to cities under the federal Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) of 1974. The grants were to be spent "with the participation of citizens and in light of their views." A history, titled "Two Centuries of Urban Development" and authored by local historian Carl Kramer, constitutes a large portion of the report.
