PARTICIPATE IN SECOND PUBLIC WORKSHOP & HELP PLAN FOR THE FUTURE OF JEFFERSON COUNTY

Jefferson County invites you to attend the second Public Workshop for the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan.

Jefferson County, IN – The County began the planning process for the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan in June of last year, and anticipates completion of the plan in September of 2020. This plan will pave the way for a refined vision for the County, and become a roadmap for future growth and development.

On July 30th, 2019 the County hosted a public visioning workshop to kick-off the development of the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan. In this first meeting, participants focused on challenges for the community, and ideas for the future. Ideas and issues were collected from the first public workshop, various township meetings, focus group meeting, key-person interviews, survey, and the steering committee throughout the visioning phase of the planning process. The collected feedback is reflected in the draft vision statement, goals, and recommendations that will be available to review in this workshop.

As part of the Public Workshop #2 on March 2nd from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Ivy Tech Madison (590 Ivy Tech Drive, Madison, IN), we are asking attendees to provide feedback on the draft vision statement and goals, and then prioritize the recommendations for the plan. The style of this meeting is also an open house format where attendees can arrive at any point during the meeting time and stay as long as desired.

“We are excited about the great ideas we have heard so far and look forward to the additional feedback at this second workshop. You can quickly stop by and share some ideas for the future of our community during this open house,” stated David Bramer, County Commissioner.

Following this public workshop, the planning team will begin to develop the draft comprehensive plan document that will be open for public comment later this spring. The Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan is expected to be adopted this fall pending any final comments from the public or county commissioner.
