About Us

Jackson Redevelopment Authority (JRA) was created pursuant to the Statutes of the State of Mississippi through a Resolution adopted by the City Council of Jackson on August 13, 1968.  JRA is governed by a Board of Commissioners that are individually appointed by the Mayor of Jackson and confirmed by the City Council.  JRA establishes Urban Renewal Areas throughout the City of Jackson; works to revitalize those areas by using land acquisition and by purchasing or implementing eminent domain; and,  has bonding capacity to assist with the revitalization of projects that are consistent with the Urban Renewal Plan and the City of Jackson’s Comprehensive Plan (Future Land Use Plans).  The primary function of JRA is to eradicate blight in the Urban Renewal Areas.  This includes the rehabilitation, conservation and redevelopment of areas of Jackson as is necessary in the interest of the public health, safety, moral and welfare of the residents of the city.  JRA also serves as the Parking Authority for the City.
