#DTJax Surveys
Survey Header
Each year Downtown Vision evaluates the state of Downtown Jacksonville and collects data on how to improve the Downtown experience. If you live or work in #DTJax (Northbank, Southbank, Brooklyn/Riverside Avenue, LaVilla or the Stadium District) we want to hear from you. Respondents will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift certificate to the Downtown restaurant or retailer of their choice. It is the LAST WEEK to enter for the gift certificate! A winner will be selected in early 2018 and contacted via the email provided.
Thank you in advance for your time and thoughts about #DTJax!

  • Downtown Ambassador of the Year – Willie Browner
  • Downtowners of the Year – Frank Denton and Mark Nusbaum
  • Downtown Project of the Year – Cowford Chophouse

We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors, vendors, volunteers and silent auction committee. It takes a village to create a circus!
