A comprehensive survey of Louisville, Kentucky’s historic structures could halt last-minute battles between developers and preservationists.

Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson has proposed an extensive survey of the city’s buildings to identify which ones are historic. The survey would help to protect historically significant structures against premature demolition. It’s not clear yet though, how long it will take to review Louisville’s 389,826 buildings—or how much it will cost.
