The Barren River Area Development District is one of fifteen ADDs in Kentucky that comprise a statewide network of multi-county planning and development organizations. BRADD local governments provided technical assistance, training programs and publications covering a wide range of applicable subjects including financial management, personnel management, general government operations, legal issues, recreation planning, criminal justice planning, legislative services and technical newsletters through the Public Administration Specialist. Unlike many other organizations structured along multi-jurisdictional lines, the ADDs have both federal and state statutory authority (KRS 147A).

(FRANKFORT, Ky.)— Kentucky’s Area Development Districts have partnered with the U.S. Economic Development Administration, Kentucky Department of Agriculture, Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy, and Kentucky Agricultural Council to launch the Kentucky Agricultural Development Information System (KADIS).
The KADIS will become the state’s first interactive agricultural asset map, designed to identify agricultural trends within the state, plan for disaster mitigation, and drive economic development efforts.
“As part of an effort to incorporate agriculture into the area development districts’ current economic development framework, a unified, comprehensive catalogue of Kentucky’s current agricultural assets was needed,” Chris Sutton, executive director of the Pennyrile Area Development District and chair of the Kentucky Area Development District Agriculture Committee, said.
The project is being funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration and the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund and is being carried out by the state’s 15 area development districts.
“The KADIS is the first of its kind in Kentucky and in the region,” said Phil Paradice, Jr., regional director for the Atlanta Regional Office of the Economic Development Administration. “There is great potential for economic growth and disaster planning and mitigation in this project, and we look to use this project as a model going forward in our work with other states in the Southeast.”Read more: Kentucky Launches Statewide Agriculture Asset Mapping Project
