Not even a global pandemic in 2020 could slow growth in the City of Jeffersonville.
The Jeffersonville Planning and Zoning Department actually saw an 8% uptick in case load.
“Caseloads can often be an indicator of the broader economic health of the region, as well as the country,” Planning and Zoning Director Chad Reischl said. “By the end of the year we approved over 1,300 new residential units and over 2 million square feet of new commercial and industrial development.”
- Hilton Garden Inn, west side of Hwy 62 in Bridgepoint Commons
- Jefferson Ridge, multi-family residential development, 2508 E. 10th Street
- Great Xscape Movie Theater, 2800 Gottbrath Parkway
- Fairfield Inn, 3000 Gottbrath Parkway
- Shirley’s Arbor Park, Charlestown Pike and Woehrle Road
- Numerous single-family developments
“It does not surprise me that our city saw this amount of growth last year,” Mayor Mike Moore. “I know 2020 was a tough year, but looking towards the future, developers know what opportunities are here.”
Apart from approving new development, the Planning department has undertaken a year-long eff ort to overhaul its 19-year-old zoning code and its 24-year-old Subdivision Control Ordinance, combining these two documents into one Unified Development Ordinance.
“This is a huge undertaking for the Department, but one that we feel is long overdue,” Reischl said. Click to read the entire 2020 Jeffersonville Planning and Zoning Annual Report.
