West Jackson Streetscape
Exciting plans are in the works for West Jackson Street from Madison Street to Remington Avenue. Beginning August 15, citizens will have an opportunity to learn more about the project and how to contribute their ideas to the development of a streetscape plan for this downtown street. The proposed project will focus on the area of West Jackson Street from Madison Street to Remington Avenue at the railroad crossing.
This project will rely heavily on public input to help shape the final design, which will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council in December 2017. The public engagement process and proposed timeline of the project is outlined below (click on the image to enlarge).
Business owners, property owners and interested citizens are invited to contribute their ideas to this project for the possible improvements for this area.
Questions and comments can be directed to April Norton, Main Street Director, at (229) 227-7020.
- November 2017 – After months of engaging with community members and actively listening to their ideas and concerns, a concept for the West Jackson Streetscape project has finally emerged. The City’s primary goal with this project has been to set a new precedent for soliciting public input regarding major projects. The conceptual plan, which will enhance this vibrant area of downtown Thomasville, was unveiled to a crowd of over sixty community members at an open meeting Monday, November 20 at Trinity Anglican Church. Thomasville residents will have an additional chance to offer feedback during an upcoming Planning & Zoning meeting where the concept design will be reviewed by the Commission and a recommendation to City Council considered. The Planning & Zoning meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 4 at 5:30pm in the Council Chambers at 144 East Jackson Street. To review this conceptual plan, please click here.
