Community Development

Welcome to the City of Batesville!

The Community Development Director is responsible for building strong relationships with current and future businesses, non-profit organizations and the residents that make our city the best place to live, work and raise a family.

Working with City agencies, non-profits, businesses and individuals, the Community Development Director finds solutions to a range of topics including workforce development, inclusion, quality of place, downtown revitalization, economic development, social services and community outreach.

The City of Batesville recently launched its newly developed website and promotional video highlighting our community and economic development opportunities. The new promotional video and website highlight our charm and growth. Both feature family-owned shops and restaurants – showcasing the community investment in education and healthcare facilities, spotlighting arts and culture and the trails that reveal the natural beauty of Batesville.
