Passport Discusses Requested Zoning Change for Health and Well-Being Campus in Downtown Louisville

Well Being Campus LogoPassport held a public meeting on Tuesday, April 17, to discuss a requested change in zoning for the Health and Well-Being Campus that is being planned in the West End of Downtown Louisville.

During this meeting, Jon Baker, an attorney with Wyatt Tarrant & Combs, discussed the zoning request that Passport will be making.

Passport is requesting a zoning change from C1 (Commercial), EZ1 (Enterprise Zone) and R6 (Multi-Family Residential) to PD (Planned Development). This is because PD zoning is a good fit here, allowing Passport to have design flexibility while maintaining oversight that ensures every building fits into the vision of the Health and Well-Being Campus. PD zoning respects and supports the existing neighborhood, integrating the new development to ensure it is compatible; it provides flexible design standards to create a livable community; and it promotes efficient and economic land usage.

In the next few weeks, Passport will file a zoning application with Louisville Metro Planning and Design Services. During this step, agencies like MSD, Public Works, the Fire Department and Health Department also have a chance to review the plans. Once their comments are addressed, Passport will be scheduled to attend the Land Development & Transportation Committee, which is open to the public. If LD&T determines that everything is in order, they will set another Public Hearing date. After the Public Hearing, the plan goes through Metro Council which has final say on the re-zoning. This entire process usually takes 6 to 8 months.

Nothing in this process will derail the current construction under way on the headquarters.
