DVI Updates 


Our 2015-2016 Annual Report is now available!
For more than 15 years, Downtown Vision has had the privilege of creating and supporting a vibrant Downtown Jacksonville and by promoting Downtown as an exciting place to live, work, visit and invest.

This past year:

  • Our Downtown Clean & Safe Ambassadors logged 22,000 hours to make DTJax clean and Downtown a better place safe.
  • Our produced events drew more than 200,000 people to DTJax creating lively streets and supporting our small businesses.
  • The #DTJax hashtag reach exceeded 24 million people reinforcing Downtown as the City’s unique epicenter for business, history, culture and entertainment.
  • And, our 2015 State of Downtown Report provided developers, investors and realtors with a holistic broad view on the health of DTJax progress occurring in Downtown Jacksonville.
  • We also implemented a number of special projects this year, ranging from the Downtown Parklet Program to the inaugural DTJax Gala celebrating Downtown to The Elbow Entertainment District Marketing Co-Operative.
These are just some of the highlights you can find in our Annual Report, which you can view and download here.
