About Us

The City of Jeffersonville is a unique and dynamic community situated on the banks of the Ohio River. As the City continues to evolve as part of the growing Louisville Metropolitan Area, the Jeffersonville Planning & Zoning Department is committed to facilitating development and improving quality of life for community residents, business owners, and other community stakeholders. Our aim is to serve as a resource and catalyst for smart growth and development that enhances the City and ensures that Jeffersonville remains a unique and special place.

The Planning and Zoning Department actively seeks to facilitate change through long-range planning initiatives, creative place-making, strategic infrastructure improvements, and amendments to public policy. Collaborative planning with citizens, businesses, organizations and institutions is integral to our work. The Department enforces the city’s Zoning Ordinance, Comprehensive Plan, and Subdivision Control Ordinance and operates under Indiana Codes 36-7-4, 36-7-10, and 36-7-10.

The Jeffersonville Planning & Zoning Department provides staff support for the city’s Plan Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals and serves as a resource to citizens and developers who need assistance with the city’s development and zoning controls.
