JACKSON, Michigan — University of Michigan students are holding an open house to present the results of community projects aimed at offering new digital tools for Jackson residents.

The eight projects stem from an ongoing partnership between Jackson and the School of Information at the Ann Arbor university.

Working with civic organizations and government offices over the fall semester, teams of students identified the city's information needs and designed tools to meet them. The open house is planned Monday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Jackson City Hall.

Projects include tools to increase community support and appreciation for the preservation of historic structures; assist with an open data policy within the city; get information about blighted properties; and engage residents in the city's public art offerings.
