JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Jackson Medical Mall Foundation and other community groups are celebrating the completion of a huge revitalization project in Jackson. The newly developed East Village Estates community includes 44 brand new townhomes.

On Thursday, local leaders visited the neighborhood for an official ribbon cutting ceremony. Occupants have the option to rent the homes for 15 years and then buy them for $50,000.
    
"It makes us feel really good knowing that the community is building up and that people who may not otherwise be able to afford or buy a home, we'll be able to do that," said Lorraine Ransom, an East Village Estates resident. 

All of the homes are occupied, but you can call the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation at 601-982-8467 for additional information about the development and future plans.
