Encouraging Community Collaboration
Louisville Metro Government, University of Louisville, the Jefferson County Public Schools and Jefferson Community & Technical College. It began with three partners in August 2004, as a major step toward overcoming challenges to Louisville's environmental practices. JCTC joined the Partnership in 2012. Together, the partner agencies employ over 30,000 people, enroll over 135,000 students, own more than 531 buildings with 30 million square feet of space, operate and maintain 7,000 fleet vehicles, and manage 25,135 acres of land in Louisville Metro, which is one-tenth of the land in the merged city-county. Through the coordination of efforts and cooperation, the Partnership has been able to realize real results that will have long-term impact on the health, education, and well-being of our citizens while improving and institutionalizing environmental practices within the organizations themselves.
