This Morning: Jackson neighborhood meetings focus on proposal to fix streets


A plan to fix roads in Jackson will be the focus of 3 neighborhood meetings this month.

Jackson City Council Member, Colleen Sullivan, came up with a 20 year plan.

Now she’s hoping the public will weigh in.

Tonight Sullivan along with other city officials will give a presentation on the new plan.

It’s 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.

She believes this would take the city out of the ever-growing cycle of patching up old roads.

You can weigh in during tonight’s meeting.

Meeting schedule:

Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 6 p.m. Martin Luther King Center, 1107 Adrian St.

Thursday, Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. Carnegie Library, 224 W. Michigan Ave.

Monday, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. Calvary United Methodist Church, 925 Backus St.

The plan will then go to council who will decide if it will go up for a vote.
