In January 2021, the MICD Resource Team offered the City two leading experts to work with City staff and community stakeholders by providing design and development assistance on important issues facing the Jackson Hill Neighborhood. Specifically, City staff asked for their assistance in seeking greater investment equity to identify new commercial development opportunities in this neighborhood. Our focus areas included partnering with the community to define a vision for the future, assisting the neighbors and businesses to find success through development which fits the neighborhood, and bridging the physical and social barriers to economic success.
Summary of the above report
The MICD Resource Team had conversations with ten past and present residents of Jackson Hill, along with developers from outside the community who expressed interests in making investments here. The questions, within this link, were asked of these residents and stakeholders. We would also appreciate your responses to these questions!
