GLI Statement on Louisville Metro child care zoning changes

Greater Louisville Inc. president and CEO, Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, issued the following statement on the Louisville Metro Council’s ordinance regarding child care zoning regulations, which passed the Metro Council Planning & Zoning Committee on Tuesday.

“GLI applauds the Metro Council’s planning and zoning committee for its passage of legislation to make needed changes to Louisville’s childcare zoning regulations. This ordinance will expand the options for where childcare can be located, making it so providers can be closer to where families work and live. During this critical shortage of childcare providers, it has never been more important to provide increased resources and options to get caretakers back in the workforce. We encourage Metro Council to quickly pass this timely and critical ordinance.”
