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.

Local Artists and Welders team up to meet needs for cyclist explosion in Jeffersonville

In response to the overwhelming need for new bike racks in the City of Jeffersonville artists that are active in the Jeffersonville Arts Alliance (JAA) have teamed up with students from the Jeffersonville High School welding program to create new and unusual pieces. These racks will be placed in strategic locations in downtown. Five active Artists from the JAA have been paired with five welding students. Each design will be unique and will be a product of the artist's vision combined with the students' practical knowledge of what can be built.Bike-Racks

Funding for the project is being provided by the Clark County Growing Healthy Lives Task Force and the Jeffersonville Urban Enterprise Association.

All five bike racks will be constructed during a marathon sculpting session starting Friday, August 22, 2014 in the Welding Department at Jeffersonville High School. Work will take place at the following times throughout the weekend:

August 22, 2014: 4:30 PM – 8:30 PM
August 23, 2014: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
August 24, 2014: 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Members of the press and the public are welcome to attend and watch the work progress.

The entrance to the welding shop is on the northwest side of the school, along the drive between the school and the Kroger shopping center. There is a large overhead door that opens into the work area.
