This Day in History September 8th

on September 8, 2019, 6:00 AM / in History, News

In 2007, In an effort to make the city of Jackson the best it can be, LANA, Lambuth Area Neighborhood Association, started preparing for a long term relationship with the city of Jackson. Scott Parish sent this to me as the City Councilman and I wholly approved of the work he and his staff are proposing. There were sub committees proposed that fall under Government Affairs for LANA. Though Lambuth College’s Public Relations Director and I don’t agree that two of them should be in this category I think they must begin here to be fostered and grown. We can discuss more about that later.
1) CERT
Train and prepare for disaster response.

2) City Code Relations
a) collect resident complaints of property code violations
b) monitor violations and resolved violations
c) report possible violations and resolutions
d) maintain database of property owners
e) maintain database of reported violations

3) Friendship (the Meet and Greet guys)
a) welcome new residents into LANA
b) provide new and existing residents with information of how to become involved with LANA
c) make available and distribute specific information that is additional to the LANA newsletter
d) maintain a working relationship with LANA Communications Committee to improve involvement among LANA residents

4) Community Improvement ( the “I’m glad you are my mayor. What have you done for me lately?” guys)
Some of the projects were here
a) petition for sidewalk repairs and additions
b) petition to have streets blocked that should not be pass through
c) find support for area wide Wi Fi
d) Work with TVA on “green power incentives”
e) petition for additional signage as needed (children playing, stop signs, traffic lights)
f) undertake other large scale projects that would contribute to LANA being a safer, cleaner, more family oriented community.

By 2010 none of these programs were still on the burners of LANA, directorship had changed.
