CONSIDER THIS: Cleaning Up near JSU

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

Jackson State University has a significant impact on the metro area, especially Jackson, but the school is facing several challenges including financial issues and searching for a new president to lead the school.

With other issues taking priority, the plan to clean up blighted properties around the campus and build student housing was put on hold. However, with the help of Revitalize Mississippi, the area will be free of the dilapidated properties which will also help reduce the crime that is more prevalent in those conditions.

Consider This:

Hopefully, when a new president is in place and financial conditions improve, Jackson State can revive the plan to build the new student housing facility. In the meantime, improving the area by turning it into green space is a positive move.

Revitalize Mississippi deserves the credit, and a big Thank You, for tackling this problem.
