City of Jeffersonville to update 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. Once drafted, “Building Jeff” will be the City’s new framework for growth, development, infrastructure, public policy, and more. Please join us in this effort!
