Inside NoCo

NoCo is developing within 22 acres of previously blighted area of downtown Jeffersonville. A refurbished water tank, emblazoned with fantastical, vibrant colors and a whimsical subject matter, serves as the focal point of NoCo and is a bold signal to visitors from blocks away that they are entering the heart of Jeffersonville’s creative hub.

In the shadows of the water tank, a former auto body shop has been turned into a community arts center offering continuous art making activities to community members and visitors. Across the street, a former office space now serves as a high tech Makers’ Space encouraging professional collaborations between designers, business and industrial enterprises. A block further north leads to a former car dealership that is now home to the Vintage Fire Museum featuring historic fire engines as well as Picasso Pointe – a family-centric pocket park filled with interactive, educational games, a 70 foot-long fabricated community table and a performance green space. The perimeter of the park is illuminated by Picasso-inspired sculptural lighting designed by local elementary school students. Just a stone’s throw away is the county’s local history museum, which has taken up residency in an old sign factory.

NoCo is a prime example of everything Jeffersonville has been championing for the last six years and while the area has already seen great change and re-imagination, this is only the beginning! There are still more exciting things to come!
