The Department of Planning and Zoning is responsible for creating plans, drafting policy and coordinating the implementation of civic projects that relate to the City’s vision of the future. This vision is set forth in the Comprehensive Plan based on the observation of trends in employment, population, housing, local culture and other metrics. The primary goal of long-range planning is to enhance the quality of life for all residents and ensure an efficient use of City resources.
2040 Comprehensive Plan
After several years of remarkable growth and development, the City of Jeffersonville is embarking on a year-long effort to update its Comprehensive Plan. So much has been done since our last plan was drafted in 2015, but there is much to be done, new challenges to overcome, and new opportunities to explore. Over the next year the City’s Planning Staff will be collecting data, interviewing residents, talking to civic leaders, mapping trends, and determining a course of action for the next 10-20 years.

NoCo Arts District Master Plan
The Planning Department was happy to assist with developing a new Master Plan for the NoCO (North of Court Avenue) Arts and Cultural District that’s being drafted by Forecast Public Art out of St. Paul, MN. Our team provided significant input into the planning process, helped with a district mapping project, and created many of the graphics used for stakeholder meetings that were part of the planning process.

Jeffersonville Tree Walk
In 2012 the City of Jeffersonville’s Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) drafted plans to create a 1.5-mile long, tree-lined, walking route in and around Downtown Jeffersonville. The now fully-planted Tree Walk includes over 140 trees representing 70 different species of trees. The Walk is clearly marked with way-finding signage and each tree is labeled with its common name.
