ARS National Forum to Highlight Louisville Merger Experience

Alliance for Regional Stewardship

The Alliance for Regional Stewardship will host its National Forum on Regional Stewardship in Louisville, Kentucky, November 8-11, 2005. This theme of the Forum is "Collaborative Governance-Is Your Community Ready?"

The Forum will kick off with a workshop on November 8-9 titled "Lessons From Merger," designed for representatives of communities that want to explore the Louisville-Jefferson County merger experience in depth.

Forum plenary sessions, beginning November 10, will introduce the Greater Louisville Region and highlight the merger between Louisville and Jefferson County in 2003. Additional sessions will focus on new ideas in collaborative governance, creating an identity for and marketing your region, and rural regional stewardship, among others.

The Forum will kick off with a tour of the Greater Louisville region. Join experts from Louisville and Southern Indiana on Wednesday, November 9th to hear about-and see-downtown housing options, public housing transformation, and Louisville's award-winning waterfront.
