vacant properties as a way to bring additional funds to the city.

help,” City Manager Jonathan Greene. “The buildable lots are a low-cost solution for residents looking to build a new home. You’ll also have the extra benefit of living close to everything Jackson has to offer.”

All the money from these sales will go into the City’s General Fund, which will help fund city services like streets, parks, and public safety.
