JEFFERSONVILLE —

“I think it expands the potential the livability and the attraction of the region and potential investment,” Sizemore said. “Younger generations, in particular, are very interested in facilities like this. [It’s a] really important investment, its beyond transportation its a health factor as well.”

Corbin said in addressing livability concerns, the city may also become more attractive to businesses.

“Businesses and corporations are looking for quality-of-life issues to relocate to communities, so they look at parks, schools and pedestrian and bicycle facilities,” he said. “It sort of increases our desirability for businesses that might want to move here.”

Developing the plan must move forward quickly. Corbin said a condition of the grant is the money must be spent by June 20.

“Once the plan is complete I hope we can use it to leverage funding or apply for grants,” he said.

Overall, the expectation for Corbin is that an improved pedestrian and bicycle plan will give other options to people and open up Jeffersonville to a new crowd.

“That’s really the way I see it,” he said. “Come spend the day in Jeffersonville and that means exploring the city by foot and by bike.”
