Welcome to Perspectives
A blog by Purchase Area Development District
The Purchase Area Development District (PADD) offers a diverse collection of services, touching every aspect of life in the Purchase Region. Located in the far-west Kentucky, PADD services include programs for human support, community infrastructure planning, economic development, and special projects – – the blending of these offerings provides a well-rounded approach to meeting the current and future needs of our region.
The PADD is governed by those we serve. Our board of directors includes judge/executives, mayors, and citizen members from the eight counties Purchase Region, including Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Marshall, and McCracken. Over 250 community members actively participate in committees and task forces that provide input and guidance to the program areas they support. Funding for these programs is provided through a blending of federal, state, and local funding sources.
The Purchase ADD is one in a network of 15 area development districts serving the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These districts were formed through state legislation to assist in the planning, coordination, and implementation of services. Since 1969, Kentucky Area Development Districts have evolved from conduits for regional and local economic development planning to catalysts of change in almost all aspects of life throughout the state and in our individual regions.
