The City of Marianna and Jackson County Board of County Commissioners are pleased to announce an upcoming visit from an American Planning Association Community Planning Assistance Team. The team was selected after an application was submitted jointly in 2016 to improve economic and residential development, and traffic volumes along the Penn Avenue Corridor from I-10 north to US90. The visit will take place from Sunday, February 25th to Friday, March 2nd.
To kick off the team’s arrival, there will be a “Marry Marianna Celebration” with live entertainment, free food, wedding cake, vendors, and fun and games for all ages, including the newlywed game.

The celebration will take place on Monday, February 26th from 4-8 p.m. at Madison Street Park. The commitment ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m. Grab your family and friends and join the celebration of our town committing to one another and Jackson County.
