Here are highlights from the June 14, 2022 Jackson City Council meeting:
- More new investment from the City of Jackson is coming to the Boos Recreation Center and Loomis Park. The City Council approved a plan to use $400,000 in federal funds for a new playground and trail system in the park.
- The City Council decided to move forward with a construction project on Oakridge Drive. A small section of the street between Glen Drive and Grovedale Avenue could receive a water main and sewer replacement. A hearing of confirmation will be held at a future meeting.
- The purchase of a property on E. Prospect Street was approved by the City Council. The vacant property is being acquired for future use by the MLK Corridor Improvement Authority to be developed as a grocery store or farm market.
- The Greenwood apartment development took one step closer to becoming a reality. The City Council approved a PILOT program for the 51-unit workforce housing development on Greenwood Avenue. This program reduces the tax liability on the developer and is an important step for developers to seek further funding for affordable housing complexes.
