Economic and Redevelopment

Who are we:

Located on the Ohio River, in Jefferson County, Indiana, as the largest City and County seat, Madison was the earliest incorporated City in the State in 1809. Madison’s National Historic Landmark status, with over 133 blocks on the national historic register, offers its community an authentic place to locate and call home. Our community amenities and natural beauty, unique from other cities, collectively provide unmatched quality of life for our residents and visitors. Because of our location and stimulant business environment, Madison has access to the world through the Ohio River, our city-owned and operated Madison Railroad, and The Madison Municipal Airport, in addition to our nearby access to the interstate system.


What we do:

The Office of Economic and Redevelopment is tasked with promoting investment for the City of Madison and Jefferson County through an interlocal agreement with the County Commissioners. The economic team serves and cultivates the growth of our quality of life within our community by enhancing its amenities for attraction of investment. Through business, workforce and community development, we work closely with numerous agencies and nonprofits to craft strategic initiatives for growth and with business, industrial, and education stakeholders to ensure collaboration for workforce development. In addition, we develop strategies with our tourism partners, Visit Madison, Inc., Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, and Madison Main Street organizations, to foster the best environment for Madison to attract, retain and promote further entrepreneurship countywide.
