In works for nearly a decade, board approves official transfer of land for public use
The River Ridge Development Authority gave final approval on Monday to the transfer of 106 acres at the commerce center to the city of Charlestown.
“We are happy to finally make this gift of land to the city of Charlestown official, and fulfill our promise to the community,” said Jerry Acy, Executive Director of the River Ridge Development Authority. “Contributing to the communities that surround River Ridge Commerce Center fits with our mission of making this area a great place to work and live. We know the community will benefit from this land for years to come.”
River Ridge has also donated land to the city of Jeffersonville and the town of Utica. With the donation to Charlestown, River Ridge has now committed more than 300 acres for public benefit, including sites in Jeffersonville for a new fire station, a new city park and a wastewater treatment facility. The Authority recently conveyed approximately 100 acres to the town of Utica for an emergency response center and maintenance and storage facility.
