Historic Preservation & Town Square Zoning

What Are We Doing? 

The Town of Jackson is rezoning the Town Square Character District to implement the desired future character of the Comprehensive Plan. Design requirements may be considered to protect the western character of this iconic district. The Town and County seek to expand the scope of this community conversation to explore how we define western character and what tools can be implemented to promote historic preservation community-wide.
