The development of ConnectJXN, which will be the City of Jackson’s next Comprehensive Plan, continues to move forward. A Town Hall Meeting was held in late June at New Horizon Church to present a draft Commitment Statement, Vision, and Framework to the public. Citizens were given an opportunity to engage during small group discussions on these newly released elements during the meeting. CMPDD planners along with the City of Jackson’s Planning Department will use the public input to help shape the drafting of Policy and Projects for each Framework, which will include a Land Use Plan, Transportation Plan, and various other elements.
The public will continue to be engaged and is encouraged to continue to participate in the development of the new Comprehensive Plan. A Video from the Town Hall Meeting, results of previous engagement activity, and drafts of the plan will be published on connectjxn.com. Comments and concerns may also be submitted through the ConnectJXN website.
