Assoc. Prof. Stone to help Louisville beat the heat

External News Details

The city of Louisville is getting hotter at a more rapid pace when compared to neighboring cities, and the city is taking the threat seriously. Louisville is seeking funds to study its depleted urban tree canopy and has hired Brian Stone, an Associate Professor at Georgia Tech's School of City and Regional Planning, to provide a detailed assessment of urban heat issues in the city. While state officials have been less inclined to plan for climate change, Stone's study could help inform policy decisions and move Louisville in a more resilient direction.
