**Message from the President**
1. Based on our positions on land use and low-cost housing, I have written in support of proposed land use code revisions under "Fair and Affordable Housing," which provides incentives for developers to build multi-use, multi-income housing. For more information go to http://www.louisvilleky.gov/PlanningDesign/Land+Development+Code+Improvement+Committee.htm and check out specifically "Round II - Land Development Code Imrovements." Attachment #3. All comments and questions can be directed to Michael Hill, Planning Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org. See the LWV's "Action and Advocacy" tab for full statement.
2. I have also written to the planning commission, the C-J, and the mayor opposing granting a variance to Walmart to build 400 feet back from the street. The code specifically calls for building at the street. See the LWV's "Action and Advocacy" tab for full statement.
3. The LWVUS has completed the new position on Agriculture. You can see it on the US web page at http://www.lwv.org.
