JASPER, Ind. -- A southern Indiana city is eyeing improvements to its downtown area and riverfront that could include adding new restaurants and apartments.

Jasper Mayor Terry Seitz outlined some of the development ideas for his city this week during a public hearing. He says improvements to Jasper's Riverwalk and Train Depot are just the tip of the iceberg of what's possible in the city about 45 miles northeast of Evansville.


Seitz tells WFIE-TV that Jasper has roughly 500,000 square feet in vacant industrial space that could be turned into new hotels, apartments and restaurants.

He also says the city's riverfront along the Patoka River also holds significant potential for development.
