Kimberly Hilliard, executive director of Jackson State University's Office of Community Engagement, explained this morning that part of the reason the Legislature declined to grant funding was lawmakers' beliefs that JSU's attendance numbers do not justify the need for a 50,000-person venue.

"Many of these people who own the property are absentee landlords," said Kimberly Hilliard, executive director of Jackson State University's Office of Community Engagement.
"They are not locally invested in the city. They own the land or house, and they are paid up on their taxes, but they don't live here and aren't keeping up the property." Hilliard has researched the problem of blight and abandoned housing as part of her role in Vision 2022, a Greater Jackson Chamber of Commerce initiative aimed at improving the metro area. She explained that when the state repossesses property from the owner, it isn't necessarily a bad thing. "It's sometimes a great thing when that happens," Hilliard said. Hilliard and her partners on Vision 2022's neighborhood beautification subcommittee have recently been in contact with the Center for Community Progress, a non-profit organization with offices in Flint, Mich., Washington, D.C., and New Orleans, which has helped communities around the country reclaim blighted areas and turn vacant spaces into vibrant areas. As Hilliard pointed out, if the city, county and state all worked together, and neighbors were aware the lots were available at a reasonable price, the number of vacant properties could be cut down significantly. "Right now, we have a system where the county, city and state all have their own processes for dealing with the abandoned properties," Hilliard said.
