The CMPDD Planners continue to develop a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Jackson. The Plan has been branded ConnectJXN and will replace FABRIC, which was adopted in the early 2000s. ConnectJXN will visit the City’s past, present, and future as it relates to planning through a study of historic plans, current development patterns and uses, and establish a visual guide for the City’s collective vision. Public engagement through focus group meetings, online and in person surveys, and open community input is key to the development of ConnectJXN. Input received will influence the creation of Guiding Principles, which will serve as the City’s stated vision for its future. ConnectJXN will feature land use categories that will rely less on dimensions, density, and use. The focus will be more on development characteristics such as street layout and distance from the City’s core. The revised land use categories will be more development, and specifically, redevelopment friendly.
