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.

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.
