Jackson.Ohio.com - the eighth in a series of Ohio.com community websites - launches Thursday.
Jackson.Ohio.com is designed to be the source for community news and information for Jackson Township as reported by residents, community officials, correspondents and reporters at the Akron Beacon Journal and Ohio.com.
The site is powered by Ohio.com and backed by the Beacon Journal newsroom.
The community sites feature a news blog from Ohio.com correspondents and a U-Publish system that allows residents to submit their news and information.
Community members are encouraged to submit stories and photos, said Deanna Stevens Ulrich, Ohio.com content publisher. Submissions will be reviewed before being published.
Readers can find updates from Jackson.Ohio.com by using the “like” function on Facebook and follow the site on Twitter @Jackson_odc.
