Have you seen the hashtag #ProsperLouisville floating around and wondered what it was? Tyler Chesser, commercial broker & developer with real estate firm Gant Hill Associates, chats with Jason Mudd about the current state of our booming local economy and what it will take to keep the momentum going.
There is a lot of growth going on in Louisville, and there has been for a while. We are at the early stages of becoming the bigger city that many in our community have been comparing Louisville to for years. People have done something to make these things happen and now that rubber is meeting the road people are fearful of what this change will bring.
Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events.Wikipedia
But fear isn’t something to live by. At least I don’t think so. Tyler makes a good point in his blog, stating that we can do one of two things at this juncture that our city is currently at. We can:
1. Overcome fear, embrace faith and support a bold vision for the future which includes prosperity, opportunity, and expansion for the lives of all in our community.
2. Succumb to fear and oppose any such change and improvement to our community that may not appear to be a mirror to our past.
I’m going to go with that first one. I’m not scared. Are you?
