Community Meetings To Highlight The Future Of Downtown Jax

Kevin Meerschaert

Jacksonville’s new Downtown Investment Authority is kicking off a series of community meetings this week. They want the public input on a new plan for the city's Urban Core.

The meetings are a chance for residents to speak out about what they think are the most important issues related to downtown development — whether that means housing, streetscape improvements, parks and recreation, business recruitment, or all of the above.

Aundra Wallace, CEO of the Downtown Investment Authority, and Terry Lorince, Executive Director of Downtown Vision, joined us today on First Coast Connect to discuss downtown and take listener calls.
