Louisville Receives Municipal Excellence Award

The City of Louisville was recently honored with the 2017 Mississippi Municipal Excellence Award for Planning and Economic Development for communities under 10,000 population. The award is given to the community that combined the best efforts in making plans aimed at growth, stability and improved quality of life. Louisville won the award based on its role in attracting Winston Plywood and Veneer and maintaining the project after the destruction of the EF-4 Tornado in April 2014. The Winston Plywood and Veneer Project is a success story of a public/private partnership that lead to the first plywood plant built in North America in over 25 years.
