checklist: information needed to process application
The Louisville Waterfront District is governed by a special zoning regulation entitled the 'Waterfront Development Review Overlay District' (commonly referred to as the WRO District). Projects within this special zoning district require approval by the Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation.
WDC, working with a team of architects from the Kentucky Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, reviews each project application using the principles and guidelines listed in Metro Ordinance No. 66-2004. These guidelines specify, among other things, that development must enhance waterfront scenic qualities and be sensitive to the area's unique environmental qualities.
Review the Metro Ordinance and WRO Documentation listed to the right to familiarize yourself with the application process, and then we recommend that you contact the WRO Administrator at (502) 574.3768 and set-up a meeting to discuss your proposed project.
