Urban Heat Island Effect Actions - Neighborhood Data

The urban heat island effect — defined as the difference in temperature between the core of Louisville and its suburbs — contributes to heat-related illnesses and deaths and leads to higher air-conditioning bills for residents, according to a study released in April 2016. The urban core heat island effect in Louisville is rising at one of the fastest rates in the country. There are specific actions residents can take to help reduce the heat island effect. Here, residents can search to find the specific number to actions, such as the number of trees planted or cool roofs installed, recommended in their neighborhoods to address the urban heat island effect.

The columns represent the number of each action recommended per neighborhood to help reduce the urban heat island effect.
