How satisfied are you with walking, biking, and taking transit in Jackson County?
The Jackson community has several upcoming opportunities to talk with local government leaders about what changes they would like to see. The City of Jackson, Jackson County, and the Region 2 Planning Commission are working together to hold 10 outreach meetings to engage residents on the Jackson City + County Non-Motorized Plan.
The meetings are being held between Monday, May 6 and Friday, May 10. Each meeting will be a two hour public workshop. They will include a short presentation followed by opportunities to provide input on the project and concept maps for trails, sidewalks, and bike lanes in the City of Jackson, along with townships and villages in Jackson County.
City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Director Kelli Hoover says the meetings will help local officials get a better understanding of how they can improve non-motorized opportunities. “Getting this input is essential for us to move forward with plans to improve trails and safe routes throughout the Jackson area. Seeing as the majority of non-motorized projects are funded through grants and donations, we hope residents will also learn about how these projects are funded,” Hoover said. All Jackson County residents are welcome to attend the meetings.
