A Spirit of Cooperation

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Finally, after years of study and debate, the long awaited dream of local oil man and visionary, John McGowan, has taken seed, and in the not too distant future, may bloom into a flourishing metro partnership of surrounding communities.  

I'm talking about McGowan's plan several years ago of a two lakes idea which has now been modified into a one lake development stretching from Lakeland Drive to Savanna Street along the Pearl River. 

The Corps of Engineers will present the study to other federal agencies for approval. But the best news of all is the cooperation between metro areas along the Pearl, particularly when they also studied other metropolitan areas and found that water was a common theme for successful future development.  

The Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership finally has a gleam in its eye that hopefully will spread into a lot of financial and quality of life directions.  

That's my point of view.
