Codes and Regulations

Our Mission

Promote and ensure quality and sustainable land use, construction, community design, and on-going property maintenance to support continued economic growth and physical development, ensuring prosperity, health and safety, and the general welfare of all of the citizens and visitors in our community.

Performance Improvement Summary

Codes and Regulations was onboarded into LouieStat in July of 2012. Two years later, the department was reorganized and now focuses solely on property maintenance, vacant lot abatement, and licensing and permitting, and enforcement for ABC, ground transportation, amusement, food trucks, events, and other Metro required business licenses. Codes & Regulations monitors these key processes monthly and uses the data to help educate the citizens of Louisville on local ordinances and code.

Continuous improvement is embedded in their culture, and the employees in Codes & Regulations have identified ways to better serve the citizens through process improvement to increase the number of inspections completed and improve response times to inspections requested through 311. They also partner with Metro Corrections and the Department of Public Works to cut and clean properties. Also of note, the Property Maintenance division is piloting better communication methods for HQS inspections to decrease their no-show rate while also providing better services to those clients. They are also dedicated to the safety of their workforce and continue to set incremental goals toward achieving higher safety ratings.
