A conservation subdivision proposed in Louisville is back from the dead, after developer Long Run Creek Properties proposed a revised version of a proposal that would develop nearly 300 acres near the Parklands at Floyds Fork, opened in 2016.

The revised proposal would add a conservation subdivision with 833 residential lots on 172 acres and neighborhood retail center on 19 acres.
