JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Residents will have a chance to comment this month on the first gating application filed under the city of Jackson’s amended public access gating ordinance.

A meeting is slated for 6 p.m., January 21, to allow the public to comment on the gating application for the Woodland Hills Conservation Association.

The meeting will be held virtually because of COVID-19 considerations.

Woodland Hills is hoping to install one gate each at Glenway Drive at Old Canton Road and Ridge Drive at Wood Dale Drive, the neighborhood’s entrances.

Amendments to the gating code were approved last year to allow for more transparency during the gating process.

Previously, the only time the public could find out about or question gating applications was on the day the applications were slated to be approved by the city council.

The January 21 meeting will include a brief presentation of the gate locations and an outline of the application process and will provide those in attendance an opportunity to ask questions of both city staffers and the Woodland Hills neighborhood, according to the city’s website.
