Take our DTJax Employee & Resident Surveys!

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. A winner will be selected in January 2017 and contacted via the email provided.
