Progress vs. preservation turns into an ugly ordeal - wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports

Progress vs. preservation turns into an ugly ordeal
Here is a great story on the Landmarks Commission. They are a powerful, secretive and unsupervised group of community leaders with their own agendas. There is absolutely zero oversight from the Metro Council or Mayor's Office but they have the power to stop construction, assess penalties and order restorations. Essentially the Commission is Judge, Jury and Executioner rolled into one well hidden group.
Did you know that they have declared 80 different structures landmarks just as the properties were being purchased?
So why would the Commission jam up projects? Ask the former owner of Ginny's Dinner who the Commission targeted and eventually drove into bankruptcy.....

  1. I would love to find a hole in the armor of the Commissioners. They are nothing more than a legal mafia.
