The purpose of the Blight Elimination Program is to procure grant funding available for the removal of blighted properties, prevention of abandonment of neighboring properties, reduction in foreclosures among neighboring houses, and to strengthen neighborhood property values. The City of Jackson has developed a selection process for choosing a Blight Partner and is working on developing a long-term plan for utilizing the Blight Elimination Program which entails creating collaborative teams across various departments. The Blight Elimination Program will be utilized to enhance community assets around major corridors, parks, schools, zoological park, museums, community recreation locations, tourist areas, and potential new development or redevelopment area such as First Responders or Teacher’s Village.
