Community Development

Welcome to the City of Batesville’s Community Development Department webpage!

We are responsible for building strong relationships with current and future business and the residents that make our city the best place to live, work and raise a family.

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

The Community Development Director is also responsible for public relations including the monthly newsletter, news releases and communication between City government and community organizations.

Visit our site often for information, activities and resources available in our community.

We look forward to working with our diverse range of neighbors, companies and visitors. If there is anything you need feel free to give us a call!
