mayorThere is so much good news in Jeffersonville due to the economic impact ripple effect of The Big Four Bridge project. I am thrilled that our city is winning awards that shine a spotlight on what we all know: that a great place Jeffersonville is to live, work and play! I love living life in Jeffersonville!

This summer and fall Jeffersonville was honored to receive a trifecta of prestigious awards: the Primacy of Place award from Ball State University; the 2014 Indiana Association of Cities and Towns Community Achievement Award and the bronze Excellence in Economic Development Award from the International Economic Development Council. We've got momentum on our side and more progress is on our horizon including the downtown marina that has just broken ground.

Now it's almost time to kick off the holidays with opening of the Jeffersonville Ice Skating Rink. You are invited to "Shop, Dine and Skate", Friday, November 28 through January 25, 2015 to bring a little bit of Rockefeller Center to your family's holiday. The Jeffersonville Ice Rink is located at the corner of Market and Spring Streets. Mark your calendar! You don't want to miss what is fast becoming a tradition in Jeffersonville: The Nutcracker on Ice will be Saturday, November 29th at 11am.

Our downtown merchants have a wonderful holiday season planned for visitors of all ages. I encourage everyone to shop and dine local in Jeffersonville. Take a moment to visit www.jeffmainstreet.org and get all the details about our local merchants.

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.
