Jackson Residents, city leaders meet to plan for future

Residents and city leaders in Mississippi’s capitol are working together on a vision for the city to cover the next two decades.

At a meeting in south Jackson, five key issues were discussed: housing, the environment, neighborhoods, administration, and mobility. Crime also was a concern.

The Clarion Ledger reports the meeting was part of an effort to include residents’ voices in the development of a required 20-year comprehensive plan for the city. The last plan was completed in 2002.
