Go West, Ridgeland

Ridgeland wants to go a land-grabbin'.  The city of Ridgeland filed an annexation petition in Madison County Chancery Court Thursday.  The petition is posted below.

I need a map with colors and clear boundary lines to help me understand, but thats just me.

Is this best map that the City has. They need some help.

Read the doc and have no idea where the land is they want to annex

Jackson Jr. probably wants to build more apartments and cheap rental houses.

Agreed, 5:01. What good is legal mumbo jumbo. Let's see a visual of what we're looking at.

Yeah Kingfish, I'm with 5:01
I ain't no legal eagle and I ain't got much book learning. Can you give us a google maps screen shot?

“hi it’s Ridgeland, we treat everyone west of 55 like dirt, can we have more people west of 55 please”

Ridgeland will have to extend the wall on the southern boundary.

They didn’t file the complaint to make it easy for the common moron to read. They drafted it to meet statutory requirements.

Sad that Jackson uses better graphics than this.

If they wanted the subjects to know they would tell us. The city government already lets the Ridgeland Police write tickets on roads that are under posted for speed. This alone makes me have no respect for these rental house lords. Ridgeland is Little Mexico of the metro area.

Perhaps this has to do with the landfill proposed just to the west of Ridgeland and its pending review with MDEQ.

My neighbor in northeast Jackson owns probably 50 rental houses in Ridgeland alone Nd I'm pretty certain he fills them with Mexicans. Illegals actually. They are slums. Near Ridgeland elementary school and school street and behind northpark squirrel hill. It's a shame he can do this.

Are they annexing the landfill?

More importantly, will there be bike trails and rest stations?

@9:00PM
I own 2 dozen mobile homes in parks around Pearl and I fill them with illegals. The law says you can't discriminate based on Race Religion, or Immigration status. And I feel more guilty accepting section 8 then cash from illegals. It isn't my job to police the border. And illegals pay their rent on time. Can't say the same for native born black and white tenants. Are you jealous that my income is over $10,000 a month and you are a wage slave?

This will blow Gerald Steen's mind.

To 9:00 PM. If you hadn’t obliged being a neighbor, maybe you could’ve dropped an address of one of the properties. Just so the rest of us could check them out.

Jackson needs to file to claim the same area. Just for kicks and to tie it up for a decade.

Ridgeland desperately wants to get this done before the census is finished but probably too late. 2020 census will be an eye opener.

Mary Hawkins and Madison caught nappin by Ridgeland's Gene McGee?

Anonymous said...

Don't fool yourself, 11:39. This area is nowhere near Madison and you can bet your Girl Scout Cookies Mary has her eye on McGee and pays three others to do the same. She's not fond of riding around in spandex britches, pretending to be 24 though. That's left to
Gene and D.I.

Now, about those bike trails...

6:12 - Silly man! 'The law' does NOT prohibit your 'discriminating' against illegals in housing opportunities, even rented trailers. Businesses (other than government sponsored give-aways) are NOT obliged to enter into contractual arrangements or provide customer services to people who are here illegally.

@12:50, see the Fair Housing Act
(a) To refuse to sell or rent after the making of a bona fide offer, or to refuse to negotiate for the sale or rental of, or otherwise make unavailable or deny, a dwelling to any person because of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin.

Looks like a power play to stop the landfills. The plan will annex the entire SW corner of Madison County south of Greens Crossing Road and west of Livingston Road.

Anonymous said...

@9:04 is correct. I plotted it and it is the SW corner of Madison County south of Greens Crossing Road.

SO many idiotic and uninformed comments here! City of Ridgeland and Jackson working together on this.

And October 26, 2019 at 7:03 PM re everyone west of 55 being treated like dirt - you do know your directions and the difference between east and west? West Ridgelandites consider themselves to be elitest and look down upon everyone who lives east of 55 and especially those east of 51. Pretentious NIMBYs!

Anonymous said...

Ridgeland is just trying to dilute the percentage of rental units in the city. Currently, over 55% (call Gene, he'll confirm this number) of Ridgelands housing stock is RENTAL. And yes, most of that, in the form of apartments, is east of I-55.

@3:20 PM - Jealousy is a sad disorder. Save up your pennies and you too could live west of I-55. Start in Dinsmore and work your way up the ladder, peon, but please wash off the Jackson stink first.

Anonymous said...

This will be great for R’land and North Jackson. Based on being a light commercial it will be a win for the area being close to I-220 and US 49. Hopefully this will spur some developments in this area.

This has absolutely everything to do with the landfill, legally approved. Just a delay tactic with DEQ and wasting taxpayer money on something that can't be stopped.

Anonymous said...

5:45 - Try again. There's a wide difference between discrimination on the basis of national origin and refusing to rent to a person known to be here in violation of the law, regardless of national origin. You probably also think they can't be kicked out for having nine in one apartment in violation of the facility rules and lease agreement.

October 28, 2019 at 9:06 PM, way wrong assumptions. I love East Ridgeland and don't care to move west. I'll get on your juvenile level and say that the stink comes from you. Ha!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
