The Ohio River Greenway Development Commission

In April, 1993 the Ohio River Greenway Development Commission was chartered by the Indiana Legislature (PL-174-1993) to act as a coordination, recommendation, and implementation entity for activities involving the Ohio River Greenway.  The Ohio River Greenway is a continuous 7-mile recreational corridor along the Ohio River in Jeffersonville, Clarksville, and New Albany in Floyd and Clark counties.  

The Commission consists of three citizens from each of the three communities; one is chief executive of each municipality (Mayor or Town Council President) and two are citizens appointed by that chief executive. The Commission also has representatives from Clark and Floyd counties appointed by the Governor for four years.

The Commission is also supported by the participation of non-voting members.  These non-voting members include the Director of the Office of Tourism, the Director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Transportation, and the President of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

All appointed members and non-voting members of the Commission serve as volunteers.  The Commission currently has two paid staff members, Shaunna Graf, Project Director and Meredith Gainer, Administrative Assitant.
