About Planning Board

This is a 15-member board, serving 4-year terms. Planning Board Members are appointed by the Mayor, subject to approval by the City Council, and serve as unpaid volunteer municipal officials.

The Planning Board meets once a month, on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except in November and December) at 1:30 p.m. at 200 South President Street in downtown Jackson.
