The Jacksonville Landing

This Wednesday, the Jacksonville Landing’s front steps will transform into a “front porch” during the downtown's monthly evening Art Walk.

The Landing is packing the space with 23 vendors, a full bar, games and art tents.

The pop-up party is part of a national movement called “tactical urbanism.”


From muck removal to paying for a dolphin pool or beef advertising, the House and Senate have a lot to hash out as they negotiate a roughly $80 billion spending plan for next year.

The Senate last week approved a package (SB 2500) that stands at $80.97 billion, while the House's spending plan (HB 5001) comes in at $79.98 billion.

After 28 years in operation, the Jacksonville Maritime Heritage Center says it will decommission its museum inside the Jacksonville Landing by the end of the year.

Museum board members are scrambling to ship artifacts to their original owners and other area exhibits.
