City Council virtual meeting (Citizen Feedback Requested) – Jackson
Jan 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Jackson residents wanting to have their insights known on housing needs have an upcoming opportunity to share them with the City Council. At the Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021 City Council virtual meeting, a public hearing will be held to provide residents with an opportunity to identify housing and community development needs in the City.

The City encourages residents, especially low and moderate income people, protected classes and people with disabilities, to participate in the hearing and submit comments so officials can get a full understanding of housing concerns in Jackson. All comments received during the hearing will be summarized in the 2021-22 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Annual Action Plan. CDBG funds, which come from the federal government, are allocated by the City Council every year to fund various housing and community improvement projects.

Written comments may be submitted to the email citizencomments@cityofjackson.org by 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2021. The City Clerk will read the comments into the record during the hearing. Residents may participate in the hearing by watching a live broadcast of the virtual meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m., on Comcast Cable Channel 21, the City website, and the City Facebook page.

City Public Information Officer Aaron Dimick says this is a great opportunity for residents to contribute to local government. “Housing needs in Jackson continue to evolve due to changes brought on by the pandemic. This valuable input from residents will be taken into consideration when making important decisions on allocating federal funds for housing initiatives and other community development,” Dimick said.

For additional information regarding the public hearing or to submit additional comments, residents are asked to please contact Michelle Pultz-Orthaus, Grant Coordinator, at mpultz@cityofjackson.org.

Homeless Count Day 2021 – Jackson, MI

In order to raise the governmental funds a city needs to take care of their homeless, a city first needs to know how many homeless people they are serving. Join the Jackson community as we take to the streets in the early hours of Wednesday, January 27th for the annual PIT (Point-In-Time) Count.
Please stay tuned for more organizational details as to how we will be safely doing this amidst COVID-19 by largely staying in groups based on volunteer households.

Virtual Polar Plunge & Frozen 5K (new in 2021) Registration Open – Virtual
Jan 28 all-day
Virtual Polar Plunge & Frozen 5K (new in 2021) Registration Open - Virtual

Registration is open now for the first-ever virtual Michigan Law Enforcement Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Michigan!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan’s beloved cold water challenge series is shifting to an all-virtual event for the 2021 season. But just because the format has changed, doesn’t mean the excitement, fun or importance of the event has to.

So, what exactly is a “virtual” Polar Plunge? Participants will still register online, raise money for Special Olympics Michigan’s life-changing programs, do a cold weather challenge and earn cool swag along the way. The main difference is that, instead of hitting the water at a traditional Plunge location, now the choice is up to you on where, when and how you want to get bold and cold for the athletes of Special Olympics Michigan.

Do snow angels in your swimsuit. Lounge in a cold water-filled kiddie pool in your backyard. Have a water balloon or squirt gun fight while wearing Halloween costumes. Have a family member spray you with a water hose or splash you with a bucket of cold water. Get as creative as you want and have fun with it!

Participants can also sign up to be a part of the first-ever Frozen 5K. Sign up, choose your course and send us your times when you’re done. In return, we’ll send you your choice of a Sport-Tek or heather cotton long sleeve shirt.

To register, visit PlungeMI.com before February 28, 2021 and sign up. Participate by yourself or as a team with friends, family or co-workers. Raise a minimum of $100 to receive a free 2021 Polar Plunge crewneck sweatshirt; raise more money and earn additional Polar Plunge swag including fleece blankets, jogger pants, bags, coats and more!

The Polar Plunge series raises more than $1 million for Special Olympics Michigan each year, with 2020 being a banner year that saw a record $1.37 million raised. This unwavering support from Michigan residents, businesses and Law Enforcement members is crucial to helping provide inclusive sports, health and school programs for nearly 23,000 participants all across Michigan.
