Given the uncertainty as to the details of AV implementation, it is not possible to begin making specific policies regarding the technology or its rollout. However, it would be imprudent to ignore the signs of change. So in recognition of the fact that much about AVs is unknown, it is this section of the report's intent to instead establish and reaffirm those things that are known: our city's goals and values. While the 2040 Comprehensive Plan is still in the process of being finalized, the process included a substantial amount of public engagement that sought to gather and synthesize public opinion on what values define Louisville and how those values should best be implemented. The plan provides a set of policies that will guide Louisville Metro's growth and development for the next twenty years. Given the intrinsic bond between land use and transportation, it is those principles concerning the shape and development of the community that were identified and developed through an extensive public outreach process that shall form the basis for this framework. The five key principles from the Comprehensive Plan are known as the "CHASE Principles;" they are: Connected, Healthy, Authentic, Sustainable, and Equitable. Each is referred to in the document's vision statement, which sees Louisville Metro as a vibrant and diverse community that is connected, healthy, authentic, sustainable and equitable, with compassionate citizens and memorable places among its greatest assets and where all people are able to achieve their full potential.
