Jackson City Council 10-27-20 meeting

The Jackson City Council returned to a virtual format for it Oct. 27 meeting. Here are highlights of what happened at the meeting: 


-The City Council voted unanimously to officially create the MLK Corridor Improvement Authority. The authority will focus on the redevelopment of the S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Prospect Street corridors. A nine member board will be appointed to oversee the use of tax dollars to fund improvement and business initiatives in the authority district. It’s important for residents to know that this is not an extra tax. A portion of existing tax funds from the improvement district will be used to reinvest in the neighborhood. 


-A report was accepted from the Engineering Division for a proposal to reconstruct Douglas Street from West Avenue to Mound Street. A hearing is established for the Dec. 8 City Council meeting for further review. 


-The City Council entered into an agreement with MDOT for design plans when I-94 construction reaches the West Avenue and Elm Avenue interchanges. This will bring a new roundabout to the Elm Avenue interchange. 


The next City Council meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 10.
