Hotel for Center: JRA planning to issue request for proposals for downtown hotel
A convention center hotel could soon be back on the table, according to officials with the city of Jackson.
The city, along with the Jackson Redevelopment Authority (JRA), is planning to issue a request for proposals for a hotel in the coming weeks.
The hotel would be located on Pascagoula Street across from the Jackson Convention Complex. The site is now a several-acre hodgepodge of concrete slabs being used as parking for events held at the center.
