Louisville is starting to look different . As the road to recovery from the Marshall Fire continues , the landscape is slowly transforming from ruin to rebirth .
Throughout the City , debris is being removed from fire - affected areas by the coordinated Private Property Debris Removal ( PPDR ) program and private contractors hired by property owners .
As of June 21 , 2022 , 12 PPDR removal crews are in Louisville working six days a week on 129 active parcels . Crews are removing ash/debris , concrete , metal , and trees for property owners who opted into the PPDR program . Information about quantities and types of debris that have been removed and recycled through PPDR can be found on the

Every property owner is navigating a different stage of this process , and the timeline looks different for each individual . The City will continue to support each resident though the journey from debris to cleared lots to new construction and finally moving home .
