Neighborhood Meetings Set to Discuss Road Plan

Colleen Sullivan, the Jackson City Council member from the 6th ward, has come up with a twenty year plan to fix the roads in Jackson. Now Sullivan and other city officials will give presentations on the new plan at three neighborhood meetings this month. The plan is intended to fix streets in need of repair and also provide funding to keep those roads in good shape going forward. Officials are expected to talk about costs and how it will impact residents. Sullivan says she understands the plan would take a long time to complete, but says she’s done the research and this is no temporary fix. The meetings will take place Tuesday, January 8th at the Martin Luther King Center on Adrian Street, Thursday the 10th at the Carnegie Library on Michigan Avenue and Monday the 14th at the Calvary United Methodist Church on Backus Street. All meetings are at 6 p.m.
