Neighborhood Resource Center: Maps are Power!
Our Legacy of Mapping:
For more than 40 years, the Center For Neighborhoods and the Louisville Community Design Center have worked with neighborhoods and partner organizations to educate & empower residents, identify & provide resources, and build a network of neighborhood leaders.
As a continuation of this 40 year legacy, we are building out this Neighborhood Resource Center in order to connect neighbors to the mapping services we provide, and to offer access to the numerous data profiles and existing maps within our database.

Health & Environment: A Center for Neighborhoods Health Figures Story Map
The data used in this story map is from the Center for Disease Control's 500 Cities Health Outcomes report, released in 2018.
These maps help illustrate the way health outcomes are inequitably distributed across Louisville's neighborhoods, visualizing social determinants of health that are inherently linked to race, income, gender, geography, and more.
To build strong neighborhoods, Louisville neighbors can explore this map to see how different health factors impact the city as a whole.

How Industrial Zoning and Vacant Properties Dominate Redlined Neighborhoods
This map shows how the majority of vacant/abandoned and foreclosed properties as well as the majority of Industrial Zones - areas planned for use like manufacturing - lie within Louisville's urban core (areas within the Watterson Expressway) and within redlined neighborhoods. The map suggests the exclusionary zoning of redlining pushed communities of color to areas that are more heavily industrialized than other parts of the city. Whether or not there is a direct correlation, this map opens up the case that planning for quality of life instead of by skin color or land use is a pathway to creating a safer, healthier, more robust city. What would Louisville be like if we thought more about the look and feel of our neighborhoods - creating connectivity between spaces and people - to ensure better quality of life for all?
