  • Jackson's Business Planner Guide (CLICK HERE)  In 2008, Jackson's previously titled Revitalization Committee produced an information resource to help recruit business into Jackson. The guide includes information about how to start a business in Jackson, key contact information for government and services necessary to get started, as well as a map of the area.  City Staff has recently updated the planner with current resources, websites, phone numbers, and city staff contact information.  The Economic Development Committee is tasked with adding additional information and updating demographics for this planner from time to time to provide the most up to date and useful information for new and existing businesses.
