Greater Belhaven Community Improvement District Petition Update

The Greater Belhaven Foundation got wonderful news from the City of Jackson this week that they will accept electronic signatures created through DocuSign. This will make the Petition signing process easier during these socially distanced times. This decision came after the City legal department did extensive research through Attorney General opinions to determine that it is a permissible way to obtain signatures. We are currently 79 signatures away from reaching the statutorily required 60%. If you have not yet signed and want to please email ccreasey@greaterbelhaven.com. During the Petition phase it is required that you be a parcel owner in order to sign. Once we turn the petition in and move to the election phase, everyone who is registered to vote in the District can participate.
The proposed Greater Belhaven Community Improvement District would generate an estimated $200,000 a year to be used exclusively in the Greater Belhaven District for a wide array of improvements. The funds can be used for additional security measures, enhancements, regular clean ups, as matching funds for grants to handle larger projects, and several other projects that will greatly benefit our neighborhoods. For more information please visit www.greaterbelhaven.com/community-improvement-district/ . There will be several town halls once the petition is submitted to give everyone a chance to submit and discuss all the ideas for how the money will be spent, your opinions are what will drive the master planning process. Help make Greater Belhaven the best that it can be!!!
