Changing economic conditions have led Jackson County to put two proposed road projects in Commerce on hold and move a Jefferson road up on the priority list.
The Jackson County Industrial Development Authority and the Board of Commissioners, in separate meetings, voted to move the Hog Mountain Road improvement project up on its priority list of 2008 economic development bond projects. At the same time, the proposed $10 million “Commerce Retail Boulevard” near the former Craven Pottery at Banks Crossing was moved from the second tier of the project list to the third, along with the realignment of Hospital Road’s terminus at Homer Road. Funding for the first two tiers has already been approved; funding for the third and fourth has not.
