It is vital that the residents of Jacksonville be involved in this process. A public comment hearing was held on April 16. Unfortunately, only a handful of residents attended. Meetings have been scheduled for the next three years. The next one is at 6 p.m. on May 21 at the Jacksonville Community Center. Please attend, as your input is a very important part of the planning process.
East Alabama staffers handed out a community values questionnaire at the first meeting. Copies can be downloaded at the city of Jacksonville website or picked up at City Hall, the Jacksonville Library or the community center. Your completed form can be returned to City Hall or to the East Alabama Regional Planning and Development staff. Please get one and fill it out before the next meeting.
This is our town; this is an important undertaking. Get involved, please. Jacksonville’s future depends on you.
