Urban core; advice for homeowners; salinity in waterways; performing arts scholarship

Downtown Investment Authority

Many development projects are underway in the Urban Core in Jacksonville, which got us thinking about where we are with the Master Plan for Downtown Jacksonville.

Lori Boyer, chief executive officer of the Downtown Investment Authority, joined us with more information.

Advice for homebuyers

During yesterday’s Everyday People Roundtable, a listener called in to share information for prospective homebuyers.

It turns out that the listener was Suzanne Pickett, CEO of the Historic Eastside Community Development Corp. We invited her back to elaborate.

Salinity in waterways

A new study published last week shows that the salinity — or salt content — is increasing in oceans due to climate change and land use that has potentially devastating effect on coastal and nearby ecosystems.

Steven Ponson has been covering this for WJCT News 89.9 and filled us in.

Performing arts scholarship

The Jacksonville Symphony has just announced a $500 Usher Scholarship for students interested in symphonic music and the performing arts.

It will provide recipients with valuable exposure and experience in the performing arts world while supporting their educational journey.

Tori Fusinaz, vice president and chief marketing officer for the Jacksonville Symphony, provided details.
