Master Land Use Study Area
In 2015-16, the City Council conducted a study of 323 acres bounded on the north by Vierling Drive, on the west by County Highway 69, on the south by County Highway 78 and on the east largely by County Highway 15 and the interchange at Highway 169 and County Highway 15.
The master land use study evaluates the city’s land use, transportation and infrastructure plans along Highway 169 and County Highway 15. It considers market conditions, infrastructure feasibility and input from Jackson Township Board members and property owners regarding timing and their desired end uses of the land.
In April 2015, the City Council hired Hoisington Koegler Group Inc. (HKGI) and SRF Consulting Group to conduct the study.
