First Up

Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville: "Intermodal Transportation Gateway"
 
 
The Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville is the fastest growing port
on the Inland Waterway System. This intermodal transportation gateway
is located on the northern bank of the Ohio River in Jeffersonville, Ind.,
directly across the river from Louisville, Ky. This location is within
a one-day drive of more than two-thirds of the U.S. market
and is adjacent to the "automotive and appliance alley."

History
Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville, formally known as the Clark Maritime Center
 Some important local names in the port's history:
Rep Dick Wathen,  Sen. James Plaskett,
Norman Pfau, and Philip McCauley.
Rep. Wathen, a Republican,

and Sen Plaskett,

a Democrat,

worked tirelessly

to achieve the port's creation.


"An initial survey was conducted and out of five sites studied only the site

at Jeffersonville fit the minimum requirements of a river port;

namely, adequate rail  and road connections,
a location above the high-water mark,

and available utilities."
 
"Outcries against the establishment of the Indiana port were immediately issued
from directly south of the border in Kentucky."
"There were outcries - stemming mainly
from wealthy Kentuckians
with riverbank
mansions
"....
:ike:
 

 As former commissioner Norman E. Pfau, Jr., asserts,
"Probably the biggest highlight of my two decades

with the Commission was the opening

of the Jeffersonville Port after

many years of litigation

and opposition

from the

state

of Kentucky."

"Steel Campus" in Jeffersonville
The Jeffersonville port features an acclaimed "Steel Campus" consisting of 13 steel-related tenants.
"The future looks quite good for Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville," said Rich Cooper,
executive director of the Ports of Indiana. "Its state-of-the-art facilities
are more than able to meet the demands of 21st century
commerce, whether that commerce comes from
as near as Pennsylvania or as far as Japan."

River Ridge Commerce Center has 5 deals in the works
Feb 24, 2015
By Rachel Collier
WDRB,com Five more potential deals are in the works at the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville, Indiana, as it continues to grow with new developments moving in. River Ridge already brought in 5,000 permanent jobs

to its center in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Prices for an acre of land have gone up.

Initial sales were in the $30,000-$35,000 range per acre.

Now, it ranges between $35,000-$75,000 an acre.The whole center is only 10 percent complete.

Acy says it could be 15-20 years before the center is finished. By then, there could be an estimated 50,000 jobs there.

Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville Update

Sources in Indianapolis say that the State of Indiana

via the port authority is looking for ground to expand the port acreage available in Jeffersonville.

Additionally, sources say a large industrial manufacturing corporation is looking at the Dellinger

and Ellingsworth tracks at the Northwest corner of Middle Road and Port Road.

Jobs and prosperity.

Vital 10th Street/HWY 62  Economic Corridor Progress
 
Jeffersonville Redevelopment Commission approves busy intersection improvements
Officials: Widening of turn lane will ease congestion

 

The commission voted unanimously

to spend about $38,000 to add storage

to the right turn lane on Utica-Sellersburg Road

for motorists traveling to Ind. 62 that will allow between

seven and eight cars to line up. The move comes in conjunction

with the Indiana Department of Transportation’s plan

to add a left-turn signal to the existing traffic light

at the intersection.

PROPERTY ACQUISITION CONTINUES

The redevelopment commission
unanimously approved the purchase of $187,950
worth of property for the 10th Street widening project.

The Airport Road is no longer being considered due to our limited funds.

Yes....but if Perkins gets elected he will probably try to find city dollars to invest in the airport road.  How much $$$ did the county spend on this road already?

SO how much of this work was done or put into motion before this administration or even the last one? Did you also mention the loss of FedEx from that area on Port Road? If you were not aware of this, FedEx is leaving that area as soon as they have their new facility built in LOUISVILLE! Already in the works and should be complete by fall.

No, actually it is the opposite of debt.
Wealth creation, jobs, prosperity !

 

The title of the thread:
Jeffersonville: Significant Economic Impact/Job Creation,Taxes, and Capital Investment

 

Jeffersonville is soundly growing and prospering

especially with the 10th Street/Hwy 62 Vital Economic Corridor,

two new long overdue bridges,

the downtown improvements,

the River Ridge Commerce Center,

and the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville.

 

Impressive activity!

Jeffersonville rocks!
