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. 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!
