Infrastructure 1% Sales Tax Program
Bold New Infrastructure Improvement Program

Infrastructure stability is a prime concern across our country.  There is a huge disparity between the amount of funding needed to address the infrastructure improvement needs that are identified and the amount of available funds.  Each day this “funding gap” widens.  In the City of Jackson we have estimated that the needed investment to improve the City’s infrastructure systems (roads, bridges, drainage, water and wastewater) are anywhere from $750M to $1B.

On January 14, 2014, citizens from all over our great city convincingly passed legislation to approve a 1% sales tax increase to address our infrastructure needs; a way to help close the funding gap in Jackson. In April of 2014, this Administration took on the challenge to bring about positive change in Jackson and to provide the best possible quality of life for all its constituents by making Infrastructure Investments a top priority.  We’re taking a progressive approach to address the issues that have plagued our city for decades; an approach that has put Jackson at the forefront of a national conversation.  The conversation on sustainable infrastructure management is an opportunity to solidify Jackson as a leader in innovation and planning throughout our great nation.

The Administration has crafted, and proudly presents the Bold New Infrastructure Improvement Plan, a plan that lays out a 20 year strategy for sustainable investment in the City’s infrastructure while achieving the triple bottom line.
