Jeffersonville, Indiana – Tuesday, July 17th 2012 – Mayor Mike Moore shared his long-term objectives for several of his ad- ministration’s capital improvement projects this week – outlining his plans while asking for feedback and support at Mon- day’s Jeffersonville City Council meeting.
The 10 capital improvement projects center around improving the quality of life while avoiding any tax increases or debt. Moore plans to use existing TIF funds to pay for the projects over the next six years as they are accumulated.
“These are very exciting projects that will make our city a better place to live and raise a family,” said Moore. “This plan proves we can move the city forward without higher taxes and incurring unnecessary debt. My vision for Jeffersonville is to offer the finest parks and amenities to our residents.”
The projects range from a new plaza at the foot of the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge to the widening of 10th Street to a several new parks. The total plan will cost about $36 million. Attached is the list of the projects along with a brief description.
“Over the next few months, I look forward to starting many of these projects. We are investing in our future. When make such an investment, we will see more development and growth. With that comes more jobs and tax revenue that will even- tually lessen the burden on our taxpayers.”
