A Look Ahead
Belhaven and Belhaven Heights. Our special neighborhoods where more than 5,757 of us live. It’s where we raise our children and many of us grow old. It’s tree-lined streets that we love and potholes that make driving a challenge. But it’s home. And most of us wouldn’t trade living here for any other place in the metropolitan area.
Your Greater Belhaven Foundation works daily to help our neighborhood meet the challenges that any older, city suburb faces. For example, we are working with the Greater Belhaven Security Association and our two neighborhood organizations, the Belhaven Heights Community Association and the Belhaven Improvement Association, and the institutions in our area to develop a comprehensive security plan for Greater Belhaven.
Additionally, the Foundation announced plans in early November to build a permanent stage in Belhaven Park to add to the appeal of that venue. Neglected for nearly 30 years, it was “renovated” through a cooperative effort of Belhaven residents, the City of Jackson and the Foundation 10 years ago. Now the park has become a setting for artistic performances for the neighborhood, early evening picnics and movies, and daytime lunch breaks for those who work in Greater Belhaven.
In 2019, the Foundation in partnership with the BIA will focus on beautifying the Fortification Exit at I55 and further developing that historic street as a premier entrance to our neighborhood and the City of Jackson.
