Leadership Jackson County tours Chipola Street Development


Like those who’ve come before them, the current Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Jackson County class recently tackled the challenging subject of housing within our community. After a brief presentation by Chipola Habitat’s Executive Director Carmen D. Smith, the group engaged in a robust discussion of the roadblocks to housing affordability and the opportunity for partnerships between organizations such as Habitat with individuals and agencies across the region.

Participants were given the opportunity to tour the homes being constructed as part of the Chipola Street Development, where they also met homeowner partner Malcolm McKay.
