Louisville citizens voted to establish the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), supported by a 1/8% sales tax in effect from 2009 through 2018.  The voter-approved HPF represents an impressive community asset to support historic commercial and residential buildings within Downtown and the Old Town Overlay.
