Jeffersonville board OKs plans for bigger sports complex

Multiuse sports complex nearly doubles in size



The parks authority approved Kovert-Hawkins to release the JAM Center plans for bids 8-1, with Parks Authority Board Member Zach Payne voting against.



A naming policy for parks was also adopted by the authority Monday.

The policy outlined that parks should be named after persons who have made a significant contribution to Jeffersonville. While it was deemed acceptable to name a park after a living person, it would be under exceptional circumstances. In both cases before naming the park, the authority would seek the permission of the person or their relatives if the namesake is deceased.

Another provision outlined a 10-year limit on sponsorship naming rights for facilities.

The naming policy was unanimously approved.
