We are thinking of relocating to the Jackson area. I am looking into jobs in the Jackson Public School District. I know the areas around Jackson are where everyone says to live instead of in Jackson. We are a mixed race married couple, I am white and he is black. In regards to my questions about housing we are looking a mixed race area.

1. My husband works in a furniture factory now, and we are wondering if there are production type jobs around the area. He would be willing to commute at most 45 minutes each way. Could you tell any of them?

2. We have a four year child that would need a daycare or head start program, can you recommend some?

3. Are there areas to fish? We are fine with pay lakes on private land (that is what we have here.) Also hunting areas for the winter?

4. We would need to rent a house, a 2-3 BR at no more than 700 a month, is that reasonable? Where would we get the most for our money in renting? Could you recommend a company or person that could help us fine a house to rent?

You can fish Ross R. Barnett Reservoir which is right by Jackson. There are some boat rental shops on the reservoir, or you can have your own boat and launch it from the public launches. As for hunting, head to the Delta. The Delta is where I grew up, and is wonderful for hunting. It is not that far from Jackson, a few hours, but it well worth a weekend trip.

Can't help with the other questions, sorry! But just wait and someone on this forum will! Enjoy your time in Jackson

Answer: You can look in the far south Jackson area as well as Byram community for a home for rent around that price range. Byram caters mostly to homeowners but you may find some homes out there for rent. I'm pretty sure you can find something in South Jackson but make sure it's south of Savannah Street.

1. My husband works in a furniture factory now, and we are wondering if there are production type jobs around the area. He would be willing to commute at most 45 minutes each way. Could you tell any of them?

Answer: His commute time will be far shorter than 45 mins if you choose a home in the South Jackson/Byram area, they have a great number of Industrial plants out in that area ranging from 10 or more. Jackson also has an industrial park with several jobs over there. Only commute I see past 45 would be Nissan in Canton.

2. We have a four year child that would need a daycare or head start program, can you recommend some?

Answer: If she is 4 she may be eligible for Pre-K in which if you start working for JPS, she can attend the school you're working at.

3. Are there areas to fish? We are fine with pay lakes on private land (that is what we have here.) Also hunting areas for the winter?

Answer: Plenty of lakes around the Byram area but not sure if they are public or private. I do know my brother and others go out to the Ross Barnett Reservoir to fish.

4. We would need to rent a house, a 2-3 BR at no more than 700 a month, is that reasonable? Where would we get the most for our money in renting? Could you recommend a company or person that could help us fine a house to rent?

Answer: No that's not bad you may even find one cheaper. Search hotpads.com or craigslist and watch out for scams. If every time you call about a house their telling you that one is not available but go to their website and check out their other properties, then mainly their running false ads just to get people directed to their website. Good Luck on your move
