The Central Mississippi Planning and Development District in Jackson presented the Town of Georgetown with a plaque in appreciation of four decades of membership, and continued support and loyalty.
Mike Monk, a Transportation Senior Planner with the district, states, “It was been a pleasure working with the Town of Georgetown to help obtain grants that support infrastructure improvements benefitting the entire community.”
Monk remembers working with Georgetown on several water and sewer system projects since 1992 when he began working for the district.
The Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD) is a sub-state regional planning organization, located in the central part of the state, serving the local governments of the seven county area including Copiah, Hinds, Madison, Rankin, Simpson, Warren and Yazoo Counties and the 33 municipalities within these seven counties. CMPDD was created in 1968 through the voluntary actions of local government and community leadership as a private, nonprofit corporation to address common issues ranging from local planning, economic development, governmental management, and human resource coordination.
