mayorThe momentum is continuing. Jeffersonville is among four winners of the 2014 Primacy of Place Community Awards from Building Better Communities, the outreach and engagement division of Ball State University for the Big Four Bridge and Big Four Station project.

This award means a great deal to me because it shines a light on our innovative approaches. Improving Jeffersonville attracts a well-qualified and talented workforce which in turn attracts new businesses. In fact, Building Better Communities believes that the presence of talent is the single most important ingredient in sustaining local economic development and "quality of place" is a primary factor in a community's ability to attract and retain talent.

I could not be more proud of our city at this moment. Improving the quality of life for everyone who visits, lives and does business in Jeffersonville remains the top priority of my administration and is the lens through which we view all of our initiatives. It is very rewarding to receive the recognition of our efforts. This prestigious award confirms what everyone can easily see. The City of Jeffersonville is on the pathway to progress and we are focused on the right things that will determine a vibrant, economic future both now and for our children in the decades to come.

The director of the shelter, Charlie Heavrin, said, "We have also formed a fund raising committee for upcoming events for next year to continue raising money for the spay/neuter program. After the first of the year we will be putting in place a new volunteer program. So there are some exciting times ahead at the shelter."
