JACKSON, Tenn. — New goals for the Jackson Chamber’s plan to “move forward” were unveiled Thursday in north Jackson. City leaders met early at the DoubleTree hotel for the quarterly meeting. Dubbed “Forward Jackson Two,” the initiative has several strategies to “update” Jackson and make West Tennessee a better place. That includes four big strategies attendants were told about this morning, including helping small businesses thrive and making the city a bigger destination for tourists. “Tourism is very important to this community,” said Kyle Spurgeon, president and CEO of the Jackson Chamber. “The chamber has always been involved in tourism, but you wouldn’t say that we’ve necessarily been a partner. That will change.” City leaders say the entire community is still benefiting from the last Forward Jackson” initiative.
