mayorWe had a wonderful Thunder Over Louisville this year. Four years ago, our city was deeply impacted by the national recession. Unemployment was high. We were not growing and not planning for the future because the focus was on fighting to keep jobs.

Three years ago, my team met my challenge to create a multi-step blueprint for a new Jeffersonville. We named it a Pathway 2 Progress. We infused it with hope and vision for the great city of Jeffersonville. And we began the hard work of relentlessly pursuing a future of economic growth and a better quality of life that seemed far away on the horizon.

Together, our city rallied to face the circumstances and challenges before us. This Pathway 2 Progress we began has now become a mission that is still getting more exciting with each passing day.

Today, we stand together and clearly see a new view of Jeffersonville.

There has been a complete turnaround in Jeffersonville that includes 3,000 new jobs in three years and more than $40 million of investments from our existing businesses that want to grow their futures along with Jeffersonville.

I am so proud that Jeffersonville is the home of 96 percent of all jobs created in Clark County during the last three years.

It is so rewarding that Jeffersonville has been named the fourth best city in our state for job seekers.

I am so grateful that now, instead of fighting to keep our jobs, we can boast that Jeffersonville is among the cities that have the lowest unemployment rates in our state!

Take a drive around our lovely city this spring and enjoy the new view. While you are admiring what we have already achieved, you can be very confident in the knowledge that there is much more on the horizon that will be good for our city. The Path 2 Progress will continue!

It is a privilege to serve you and our great city during this time of unprecedented growth and opportunity.

Compared to what is coming soon to Jeffersonville. .. you haven't seen anything yet!

FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps, Rate Insurance Study

Communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program have established repositories of flood hazard data for floodplain management and flood insurance purposes.

The City of Jeffersonville has received from FEMA the Revised Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) for Clark County and Incorporated Areas for review and comment before the final adoption of the maps.

Representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), will host a Flood Risk Information Open House on Thursday, November 1, 2012, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Clark County Government Building, Conference Room, 501 East Court Avenue, Jeffersonville, Indiana 47130.  The Open House will provide Clark County residents with an opportunity to review a recently completed preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and its accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).

The FIS and the FIRMs provide base flood information, delineate areas subject to significant flood hazards within the county, and offer information public officials may use when permitting development in the floodplain.

The Open House will be staffed with representatives from various local, state and federal agencies who will provide the most current information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the process for floodplain mapping within Clark County.  The newly prepared preliminary floodplain maps will be on display.  Once the maps become effective, these maps will be used by floodplain permit officials, builders and developers, lenders, realtors, insurance agents and the general public to determine flood risk, develop mitigation measures, and encourage wise and responsible risk management decision-making.

Property owners, realtors, lenders and insurance agents are urged to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about flood risk and hazard mitigation within their community.  For more information, contact John Devine, FEMA Region V Program Specialist, at (312) 408-5567 or Marge Dworak, FEMA Region V Outreach Specialist, at (312) 408-5527.

FEMAS’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

The general public is invited to review the preliminary floodplain map and learn about risks in their community.  Those interested may drop in at any time during the event to talk one-on-one with FEMA and Indiana Department of Natural Resources representatives.
