With three possible development partners lined up for a housing project in the core of downtown Jackson, the Town Council decided not to make a decision on the final choice.
The Town of Jackson purchased the prime commercial mixed-used property years ago from the Church of Christ and had leased it to the very popular Children’s Museum non-profit until they decided to build a subsidized affordable housing project on the non-residential parcel.
Officials narrowed down the potential developers to 3 with the possibility of as many as 137 units built on the site on King Street.
Public comment focused on the future of the Children’s Museum which will lose its home with the site development unless some provision is made for space.
Council will hold another hearing on March 12.
