Why was this boundary chosen?

Louisville Metro is currently updating the Comprehensive Plan, and has divided the county into 21 planning districts for further study. These boundaries are informed by Census Tract geographies, which make data gathering and comparison easier. The South Floyds Fork Vision study area is one of the 21 planning districts. Everyone interested in the process is invited to participate.
