Department Overview

Darla Blazey, Director of Community Development & Planning

Kathy Pfister, Community Development & Planning Assistant

Danika Fleck, Planning Technician

The Department of Community Development & Planning provides the citizens and businesses of Jasper with economic development, long-term planning through the comprehensive plan, strategic planning and land use issues including zoning and building services necessary to maintain a vibrant community that promotes good quality of life. The department works with a number of citizen boards that handles the majority of the community's economic, redevelopment and land use issues.

 The Jasper Plan Commission (JPC), an 11-member board, addresses rezoning and subdivision of land requests for the City and its two-mile jurisdiction in addition to maintaining and updating the City's Comprehensive Plan. The Jasper Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is a five-member board that addresses variances to the standards laid out in the city's Unified Development Ordinance. The primary types of appeals that can be filed with the BZA include: Nonconforming Situation Ruling; Administrative Appeal Ruling; Special Exception; Development Standard Variance; and Use Variance.

The Department serves as a one-stop shop for community development projects as well as property owners looking to improve and maintain the value of their neighborhoods. The department provides an exceptional customer service experience that residents and businesses expect.

In addressing the City's land use concerns, the Department of Community Development and Planning issues a variety of permits relating to construction projects. Location improvement permits (building), sign permits, fence permits, pool permits, demolition permits and land grading/disturbance permits are a sampling of the permits granted. The Department also organizes a team of various City of Jasper departments to provide a technical review of commercial and industrial projects and plans for new subdivisions.

As its name implies, the Department of Community Development and Planning handles community development matters for the City of Jasper. The department is responsible for qualifying relocating or expanding businesses that are seeking City incentives such as tax abatements.  Quality of life issues such as housing, downtown revitalization and tourism development are also addressed. Additionally, the department is responsible for overseeing the City's comprehensive plan as well as the City's branding and marketing strategy.

About the JCAC

Mission Statement

Our mission is to stimulate and encourage an appreciation of and participation in the arts. We will be a catalyst for cultural and economic development in Jasper and Dubois County through promotion of, participation in, and enjoyment of the arts.

Vision Statement

We are an organization guided by quality. We have developed a strategic plan that guides our work and allows us to be less reactive to everything that comes along. Our patrons are at the center of our work. We listen and respond to their needs as part of our mission. We treat patrons as if they are our best friends. We talk with them, we listen to them, and we respond to what they tell us. We have developed a positive working relationship with the Friends of the Arts. We work cooperatively with them to increase area support for all arts activities.

We believe the arts are for all. We offer a continuous series of visual and performing art experiences for both the novice and the more seasoned arts patron. We seek constantly to improve and expand our offerings. We are becoming a partner in the arts with the Kennedy Center which connects the arts to the school curriculum and enhances teachers' professional development opportunities.

We continue to work on plans for our facility and will take strategic action on those plans in order to meet the needs of our customers. We work to maintain positive relationships with our city, our county, our business community and our patrons while focusing on bringing the arts to life for all.

History

In the 1970s a not-for-profit group, called the Jasper Auditorium Corporation was created in order to promote the building of a civic auditorium. The result of their campaign was the $600,000 Jasper Civic Auditorium which was completed in 1977.

Founded on May 12, 1975 as part of the City of Jasper, the Jasper Community Arts Commission became the only arts commission in the state to be officially recognized as a department of the city and under the authority of the city council. Its mission is to stimulate and encourage an appreciation of and participation in the arts by citizens of all ages in Jasper and the nearby area, and to foster an environment conducive to the enjoyment of the arts. The JCAC is responsible for the management of the Jasper Arts Center.

The Jasper Community Arts Commission consists of 11 government-appointed members. Four members of the Commission are appointed by the Mayor, five by the Jasper City Council, one by the Jasper Parks and Recreation Board and one by the Greater Jasper Consolidated School Board.

Since 1977, the Jasper Arts Center has grown in size and strength. In March 1983, a 31 x 117 feet addition provided for the Krempp Art Gallery, office space, additional restrooms, a ticket booth, concession area and storage space.

The Jasper Community Arts Commission employs a staff to oversee its day-to-day operations and programs. In the past few years the staff numbers have grown from the original two employees to four full-time and seven part-time employees.

Rental prices are based on the type of usage required as well as areas of the building used. All renters must provide liability insurance. Rentals are based on blocks of times: four hours for event, five hours for set-up and rehearsals. Full building rentals include general stage lighting (wash from the front and overhead), use of the house sound system and use of follow-spots (renter provides operators). Piano usage may also be arranged for an additional fee. A JCAC representative will be on hand for full building rentals to oversee lighting and sound.

Backstage Crew

General Information for Backstage Crew

Contacting JCAC Staff

If you need to reach JCAC staff, the office telephone number is (812) 482-3070. Ask for Doreen Lechner, Facilities Manager. 

Attendance

Your agreeing to serve as a volunteer is a commitment that we greatly appreciate. We are contractually obligated to provide a certain number of crew, and we rely on your commitment to be at the Arts Center throughout the time period in which you have agreed. Each performance has a different set of time and crew requirements, but they typically include load in, set up, run of show and load out. In general, we prefer that volunteers can commit to the entire period (from load in through load out), but we are glad to have your help at any point.

Volunteer Assignments

The numbers of volunteers varies from performance to performance. In general, the Performers Series events require more personnel than do the Backstage and Family Series events. Although we may not solicit your help for a particular performance, you are encouraged to let us know if you would be interested in volunteering for any of the performances.

Volunteer positions will usually fall into the following categories:

  • Loaders loading and unloading scenery & equipment from trucks/vans (ALL volunteers help with the loading and unloading)
  • Carpenters setting up the stage scenery, platforms, etc.
  • Electricians hanging & focusing of lights; follow-spot & light console operation
  • Sound assist with set up of sound equipment & console operation
  • Props assisting with stage properties
  • Wardrobe assisting with costumes & wigs; steaming, ironing, repair; dressers
  • Runners running errands for the company; transporting bus drivers
  • Hospitality setting up snacks & drinks; making cast & crew comfortable
Dress/Attire

Volunteers should wear comfortable, working clothes for load in and out. If you have a pair of work gloves, you may want to bring those as well. We do provide gloves if you don't bring any. Backstage running crew personnel (during the performance) are to wear dark clothes, preferably blacks. If you are asked to usher, you should bring along some nice clothes for that. There will usually be time to leave and change before the show call, but if we are running tight, there may not be.

Professional Attitude

As a volunteer, you are a representative and serve as a reflection of the Jasper Community Arts Commission. We have received numerous compliments from performing groups on the ability, enthusiasm and professionalism of our stage crew. We ask that you refrain from inappropriate language and behavior while you're at the Jasper Arts Center.

Professional touring groups travel with only a skeletal technical supervisory crew. They rely on having local crew do the actual set up and running of the performance. Volunteers are assigned to certain members of the touring group and are answerable to them. If there are any difficulties, procedural concerns or suggestions, however, these need to be addressed to Doreen. She in turn will discuss them with the touring company. If your company supervisor has released you, please check with Doreen to be sure you are not needed for a different assignment.

Chalk Walk

JCAC Chalk Walk Arts Festival

The Jasper Community Arts Commission's Fifteenth annual Chalk Walk Arts Festival has been scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2018, on the square in Downtown Jasper from 8:00 am to 3 pm. Rain date is Saturday, June 9, 2018.

PLEASE TUNE INTO WITZ RADIO FOR ANY CHANGES OR CANCELLATIONS DUE TO WEATHER.

YES! You can still register for Chalk Walk up to the day of the event.  However, you will not receive the free T-shirt but some T-shirts will be available for purchase.

The JCAC Chalk Walk is a family-friendly community event intended to inspire and stimulate the creativity and artistic ability in all of us. In the tradition of European 16th Century street painting, Jasper's downtown sidewalks and pavements are transformed into colorful chalk and pastel murals. While this gallery of art will be temporary, the memories are lasting.

Plan to attend this not-to-be-missed celebration of the arts with hands-on activities, demonstrations, displays and an Arts Market.



You don't have to be a professional artist or even know much about art. All you need is the desire to have fun and be inspired!

Come join us on the Pastel Pathways and watch Jasper's downtown sidewalks come to life with color, music, and laughter.

For more information, contact Corina Mack, Jasper Arts Commission Program Coordinator, at (812) 482-3070 or e-mail programcoord@jasperindiana.gov
