Each year, Downtown Vision tracks and analyzes Downtown’s performance in key indicators of urban revitalization, such as development, employment and residential.
2019-2020 Report Highlights include:
The Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) was created to revitalize Jacksonville’s urban core by utilizing Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) resources to spur economic development. Projects are guided by a nine-member board of directors who conduct open-to-the-public business on an unpaid, volunteer basis. Of the nine, five are appointed by the mayor, four by the council president. All nine are confirmed by the Jacksonville City Council.

Jacksonville’s Downtown Master Plan, “Celebrating the River: A Plan for Downtown Jacksonville,” was approved in 2000 by Jacksonville City Council. The plan designates ten districts within the boundaries of Downtown, and outlines urban design and streetscape guidelines.
