Posted on 06/18/2024

JACKSON, Tenn. – The City of Jackson, TN is honored to announce its participation as an official stop on the National League of Cities (NLC) Centennial Roadshow: 100 Years, 100 Cities. This initiative is part of NLC’s year-long celebration, marking a century of commitment to advancing local government and advocating for the interests of cities, towns and villages nationwide.

The roadshow, organized by NLC, includes stops at 100 cities in every region of the country, aimed at spotlighting the diversity, resilience, and transformation of America’s local communities. The roadshow kicked off in February at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, where NLC was founded. Over the next several months, the roadshow will tour coast-to-coast, stopping in cities of all sizes to showcase the unique stories of municipalities like the Jackson, TN.

“We are honored to be a part of the National League of Cities’ Centennial Roadshow: 100 Years, 100 Cities,” said Mayor Scott Conger. “We look forward to showcasing our vibrant community and the assets that make our city unique.“

Officials will board the Jackson Transit Authority "Trolley" bus at City Hall following a welcome and introduction from Mayor Scott Conger and photo opps. During the roadshow stop in Jackson, TN, we will visit The LIFT Wellness Center, stop by the site of our new Jackson, TN Senior Activity Center and visit the Kellanova Plant. On our visit, we will pass by murals that display the public art in our city.

“It is truly an honor for NLC to visit remarkable municipalities, like Jackson, TN, that have made significant contributions to the advancement of local government over the past 100 years,” said Clarence Anthony, CEO and Executive Director of the National League of Cities. “Each of these cities has played a pivotal role in moving our local communities forward and has a unique story that showcases transformative change. As we celebrate and chart a course for the next 100 years, I am more excited than ever for the future of cities, towns, and villages and look forward to continuing important work together.”

As the journey progresses, the roadshow will continue making stops in cities across the country, including Tampa, Florida, where NLC will host its annual City Summit conference and culminating event this November.
