In May of 2013, the Louisville Independent Business Alliance teamed up with Metro government, leaders from the Southwest Dream Team and the South Louisville Business Association to launch the 'keep South Louisville weird' campaign, which is much more than just a slogan. The group has conducted and analyzed studies, gathered facts, and started education efforts so that area residents know why it's important to support independent businesses. Now, the group is hosting an event where independent business owners are invited to learn more about South Louisville.
This will be a no-pressure type of event that will give an overview of the South Louisville business climate and "set the stage" so that when business owners are ready to expand, they will have some knowledge of the excellent opportunities in South Louisville. Presenters will include Councilwoman Vicki Welch, Barbara Nichols of the South Louisville Business Association, Vince Jarboe of the Southwest Dream Team, Bennett Knox of the South Points Scenic Area and Jefferson Memorial Forest, and Doug Lowry, involved citizen.
