Jackson City Council April 27, 2021 virtual meeting

Jackson City Council 4-27-21 virtual meeting

The Jackson City Council held a virtual meeting on Tuesday, April 27. Here are highlights from the meeting:

  • The City Council voted to create a social district for Downtown Jackson. Once the district begins later this summer, permitted bars and restaurants will be able to serve alcoholic beverages to customers, who can enjoy those drinks in the outdoor public spaces of Downtown Jackson. Social district hours are currently set for select holidays, Thursdays and Fridays from noon to midnight, and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to midnight. The district intends to help businesses serve more customers during limited capacity rules and allows downtown visitors more room to social distance.
  • Downtown events were approved by the council for this summer. Food Truck Tuesdays, Cruise In car shows, concerts and outdoor movie nights will return after being canceled last year. The events taking place are dependent on the latest COVID-19 guidelines and case numbers. 
  • Road construction will take place this summer on Douglas Street from West Avenue to Mound Avenue. The council approved the project, which will be partially funded by special assessments.
  • The council awarded a contract for architectural design services for Loomis Park and the Boos Recreation Center. The City intends to redesign the park and center in the coming years.

The next City Council meeting is Tuesday, May 11. A recording of the meeting is available on this page.
