The Jackson Township Community Development Corporation (CDC) is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization that routinely partners with the Township, Township property owners, and neighboring communities to facilitate recreational and infrastructure improvements. The CDC helps to organize and support volunteers and particular causes. As a private organization, the CDC can complement and expedite Township efforts by facilitating public private partnerships and helping with fundraising. Additionally, they partner with Jackson Township and its neighborhoods and acts as a sponsor and friend of the Township’s Park system.To see more on Jackson Township's Parks, click here.
CDC is seeking funds for Dog Park
Recently, area residents began raising funds for a dog park. The Township and the CDC have identified an area near Porter Cove, off of Evergreen Mill Road, as a possible location that could tie into the Township planned trail network and overall park system. Estimated costs range upwards of $40,000 with in-kind contributions by the Township Public Works Department helping to reduce costs.
The CDC is seeking donations, sponsorships, and memorials for the dog park. Approximately ten percent of needed funding has been raised thus by a committed group of volunteers who have teamed up with the CDC to develop the project.

This committee of volunteers helps build and bolster community amenities and is seeking additional volunteers to join them. If interested, please contact Katie Huttinger at khuttinger [at] jackson-township.com.
Also, be sure to keep an eye out for sponsorship and memorial opportunities that will be published on the Township’s website in the near future.
