Louisville, a 15-county regional economic development organization that
will leverage all of the Louisville area's assets to attract more
businesses and jobs to the region.
The counties that are
partnering with the initiative are Bullitt, Hardin, Henry, Jefferson,
Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties in Kentucky
and Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties in Indiana.

businesses to the counties that best meet their needs, he said. More here.
