Improving Parks and Greenways

Categories: Grant Impact Stories |

 

Your gifts to the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana directly support your community. When you make a gift to the Foundation’s unrestricted Community Endowment Fund,  you are providing for our region’s most important needs, including the improvement of our community’s parks and greenways. 

Last year, Jeffersonville’s Big Four Station opened as a gateway to our community and connected thousands of new visitors to the city’s revitalized downtown. This important project has improved the quality of life of Southern Indiana’s residents and encouraged business growth. In 2013, a fund at the Community Foundation provided a grant to help develop this gateway to the City of Jeffersonville through the beautification of the downtown area including streetscaping, landscaping, and infrastructure projects.

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore said, “The Community  Foundation of Southern Indiana is an important partner of the city and our residents. With their support, and that of a range of other supporters, the City has been able to develop a revitalized downtown that has attracted people from all over. Their grant not only provided important funding for the project but also elevated our grant application to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs which provided important funding to complete the redevelopment of Chestnut Street, connecting Big Four Station to the businesses along Pearl and Spring Streets.”
