The Hub City Plan

During his campaign, Mayor Scott Conger presented a strategic plan for his preliminary goals for the City, designated “the Hub City Plan”. The Mayor’s Office is committed to implementing and expanding upon the Hub City Plan as we serve the City of Jackson over the next 4 years. The Hub City Plan attempts to address quality of life concerns and goals for Jackson residents of all ages and demographic backgrounds.

The Hub City Plan’s primary focus areas are summarized below. The Hub City Plan will be reviewed and revised regularly by the Mayor's Office. 

Mayor Conger is committed to building a better Jackson together, with the core values of efficiency, transparency, and inclusivity at the heart of everything we do.

Anti-Poverty Task Force

The City of Jackson Anti-Poverty Task Force was established in August 2019 to address poverty and other quality of life concerns in Jackson. The Task Force is composed of community members from nonprofit, education, housing, healthcare, recovery, and religious sectors. The Task Force is focused on bringing programmatic and policy solutions to the City of Jackson for reducing poverty and promoting quality of life for all Jacksonians. 

2020 Annual Review

Commission on Aging

Jackson was named to the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Cities in August 2019. Shortly after, the Mayor's Office established a Commission on Aging to provide guidance on making Jackson a more age-friendly city. One of the group's primary goals is to work on long-range plans for a centrally located senior citizens center in Jackson.

Jackson Data Hub

The Jackson Data Hub was formally launched in Spring 2020, with the goal of improving the overall efficiency and quality of the City of Jackson's services by establishing and tracking various operational performance metrics. This initiative is managed by the Director of Performance Management.

Mayor's Youth Council

The Mayor's Youth Council was launched in March 2020 with the primary goal of encouraging more civic engagement among our youth in Jackson. The youth counsel is comprised of rising seniors from each high school in Jackson-Madison County. The youth counsel meet monthly with the Mayor's Office to provide recommendations and work on special projects.

Public Art Initiative

The Mayor's Public Art Initiative was launched in fall of 2019, with the installation of the Love Your Neighborhood Mural at the junction of North Highland Avenue and College Street and the Unity Mural at the corner of Liberty and Main Street in downtown Jackson. The public art initiative seeks to exponentially grow the number of public art installations, to include murals, sculptures, and other mediums, across Jackson over the next 4 years. The public art initiative also seeks to engage more artists, both established and emerging, in the work of creative place-making.
