September was a busy month of conferences for staff with the Community & Economic Development Department. The Kentucky Association of Mitigation Managers (KAMM) held their annual meeting in Erlanger. September was national emergency preparedness month. 
CED Staff also attended the annual Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) conference in Owensboro along with other Lincoln Trail cities.  
Due to the success of the Fort Knox Compatible Use Plan study, LTADD was encouraged by DoD’s Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation to apply for a grant to work on enacting the resulting implementation strategies. We have received notification of receipt of this grant and have started to lay out the framework and timeline of elements involved. We have already begun to engage our partners at Fort Knox and the communities in our region to begin this effort. The current regional growth trends and changes add obvious urgency to our work.

A sample of some of these implementation areas include the development of and the supported adoption of specific land use policies that promote compatible use, creation of a Fort Knox market area housing study, a review of hazard mitigation and resiliency projects and policies, and a review and promotion of conservation efforts.  All these are applied as they contribute to compatible use concepts and the continued support of Fort Knox’s missions.

More information and updates will be posted on our website. You may contact Mr. Mike Robinson with questions at
