Public feedback requested on local historical milestones
JACKSON, Tenn. — Residents are invited to participate in a public forum regarding Jackson/Madison County’s upcoming bicentennial celebration.
On Tuesday, June 15, the Jackson Madison County Bicentennial Commission will meet with residents in the lobby of Jackson City Hall.
The goal is to “learn more about the personal history of the community” to develop a view of both the past 200 years in the area and aspirations for the future.
Residents will have the opportunity to submit responses to the following questions:
- What do you want us to remember?
- What can we celebrate today?
- How can we leave a legacy for tomorrow?
Those who wish to contribute, but are unable to attend in-person, can submit responses through a survey at facebook.com/jacksonmadison200.
The bicentennial year, featuring a variety of events, kicks off in August 2021 with the Birthday Bash at The Amp.
The year-long celebration comes to a close in August 2022 with a parade and concert at The Ballpark at Jackson.
