Pending Council approval, the city will also work with the Louisville City FC on an application for the tax increment financing (TIF), or tax district for the project. LouCity Head Coach James O’Connor spoke in reference to the project saying, "I think when you look at this partnership, it's actually the best description of a partnership. The soccer team obviously gains by getting a stadium, but when you look at the re-development that's going to happen around the stadium, the gain for the community is double-ended, especially for our supporters.”

With this major development expected to be completed in 2020, getting your roots planted in the Butchertown neighborhood now would be ideal. Property values will most likely rise when the...
