JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A development project in the Capital City was put back on track after a city council meeting Monday.
The approval of bond counsel for Timber Falls was delayed last week to get an update from the developer.
Monday afternoon, Clarence Chapman testified before the council. Following his testimony, the council held a special agenda meeting and approved tax-increment financing or TIF at Timber Falls.
The development was designed in 2004 to create more than 300 lease to own homes for low income families.
Councilman Quentin Whitwell tells WLBT the next phase should be complete in the next year.
