West Jackson Public Meeting, Tonight

public mtg flyers 02-11-14

Voice of Calvary Ministries, Inc. wrote a grant last year and it was funded through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Relief funds. This grant will assist with redevelopment efforts in the West Jackson Communities. The boundaries were set by the funding agency and Voice of Calvary Ministries contracted with Duvall Decker Architects to assist with planning and implementing the funds. The purpose of the West Jackson Plan is to serve as a guidebook that empowers residents and stakeholders to invest in sustainable and inclusive social, physical and economic developments within the community.

This is a GRASSROOTS planning process within the area bounded by Fortification to the North, Gallatin Street to the East, Highway 80 to the South and Ellis Avenue to the West.

Duvall Decker Architects has been meeting with West Jackson Stakeholders since March of last year and several concerns were raised at these meetings. As a result, research has been complied on many topics including educational attainments and housing stock.

Tuesday, Duvall Decker and its team will be presenting their findings at the public meeting. More specifically they are looking for your suggestions to include in the plan. Please come and support their efforts, because participation is crucial for the success of the West Jackson Plan.
