COMMUNITY = Common Unity. The West Louisville Business Association is looking to identify all businesses, groups and service organizations in the Western Louisville area that are working for the overall good of the community and Metro Louisville. WLBA colaborates with other associations, groups or agencies across the city, state and abroad. We freely share the knowledge gained from these relationships. This makes us intentional concerning the economic development and inclusion of our Western Louisville neighborhoods. Thereby allowing us to strengthen our connections and inform you on how to start, grow and develop your business. We try not to replicate products and services unless they are necesary. We strive to use the tools that are already in place and work with each other so that we will not misuse our limited precious and valuable resources. You also get to know your neighbor. Find out about the products and services that are available in your own back yard. As a community we are solution oriented and we focus on what we do have in common.
