-A A +A
By The Kentucky Standard Editorial Board

Bardstown and Nelson County continue to grow and prosper, but there are key segments in our market that are lagging behind. Available and affordable housing is a key issue that’s plaguing our community. When the real estate bubble burst in 2007, leading up to the Great Recession, everything fell apart.
