Goal and scope[edit]

The goal of our WikiProject is to encourage and provide comprehensive coverage of notable subjects pertaining to the Louisville metropolitan area by creating, connecting, assessing, improving upon and monitoring articles, lists, infobox/navbox templates and all other pages about the area and any subject/person well-connected to it (usually identified from Louisville area-related categorization).

Our scope is Louisville, Kentucky and the surrounding metropolitan area (based on the 2010 census), consisting of thirteen counties in Kentucky and Southern Indiana, namely Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson (Louisville Metro), Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble in Kentucky, and Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Washington in Indiana. See the coverage map in the infobox. In addition, because of its bordering proximity to the metro area, Fort Knox is covered.

This is an open project that is coordinated by its members. Our project tasks are a compilation generated by its members. All concerns with elements of our project should be discussed on the project talk page.

Relations[edit]

Parent WikiProjects[edit]

WikiProject Louisville shares coverage with and sometimes supersedes coverage for the following projects:

  • Formatting/Structure (city articles only): Cities
  • State-level: Kentucky and Indiana
    • Normally, WikiProject Louisville will supersede coverage by WikiProject Kentucky. An example of an exception is a state-level subject that has a clear connection to the metro area, such as a Kentucky governor who hails from one of our constituent counties in Kentucky — dual coverage is necessary in such cases.
  • Country-level (project infrastructure): United States
