Downtown Jeffersonville has changed so much in the last three decades.
The downtown has been transformed from old dilapidated buildings and very little foot traffic, to a vibrant and active part of the community filled with shops, restaurants, and entertainment.
That kind of transformation doesn't happen by accident. Per Jay Ellis, Executive Director of Jeffersonville Main Street, "it takes people and dollars" to invest in the community in order to turn it around. And now you can add "votes" to the list.
Along with raising funds for improvement projects, Jay and his team organize a wide array of events to bring people downtown including the Jeffersonville Farmers Market, Concerts in the Park, Wine Walk, and the Christmas Cookie Stroll, among others. Now, they are attempting to get Jeffersonville recognized nationally for it's downtown area.
Watch our interview with Jay Ellis below for how local residents can help with just a simple vote:
