Jeffersonville closer to going forward on Falls Landing Park

Jeffersonville Redevelopment Commission commits up to $698,000



The commission also retooled a lease for the Clark County Museum. The lease is for vacant properties located at 721 and 725 Michigan Ave. The commission previously approved a lease for the property, but it was denied by the Jeffersonville City Council. The new draft of the lease includes an out clause that gives the city the authority to remove the museum as lease holders, with a 90-day notice, as the property is also part of the RFP district, and could be purchased in the future by a developer.

“There is real conflict moving forward with uses on this property included in the RFP,” Lake said.

He added that he believes the museum is an important part of the community, but locating at that specific property may not offer maximum utility to the community.



Commissioners agreed to fund infrastructure improvements to a site on Veterans Parkway that is being eyed by Culver’s restaurant.

During Wednesday’s meeting, commissioners took another approach to facilitating Culver’s setting up business in Jeffersonville by offering $75,000 in TIF funds to make infrastructure enhancements, which could include stormwater improvements, Lake said.

He said if infrastructure improvements are made, and Culver’s decides not to move into the location, improvements to the site would still make the property more attractive to other businesses.



The commission also approved Jeffersonville Lions Club access to a Bales Auto lot to sell ticketed parking for Thunder Over Louisville festivities. The event is the primary fundraiser for the philanthropic group.
