Thank goodness for Downtown!

I am so ready for this weekend in our vibrant Downtown. But first their is work to do!

I was on First Coast Connect this morning, Melissa Ross’ emeritus morning show about all things Jacksonville. I know, I’ve got a face for radio. Check out the podcast here.

One of the things we talked about before and during Melissa’s show was that there seems to be a palpable momentum Downtown. I really think that is true. But we’ve got a lot on the line right now, in my opinion, and many things out there need to come good for continued success. One big thing we need is a focused Downtown agency within the city to help get deals done and projects off the ground.

JAX Chamber supports that in the form of Mayor Brown’s proposed Downtown Investment Authority.


“Developing Downtown and making economic development efficient and effective are critical to our region’s success.” – Tom Van Berkel, JAX Chamber chair and chairman and CEO of The Main Street America Group

Have a great weekend all! #biggestweekendever #ilovejax
