Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI) is dedicated to advocating for Downtown. In addition to addressing the individual needs of property owners and stakeholders, Downtown Vision is involved in the issues that impact the Downtown economy, including maintenance, beautification, parking, transportation, business attraction and retention, events and programming, and other economic development issues.
In 2010, DVI released a white paper, Turning the Corner: Rethinking and Remaking Downtown, which outlines eight tenets which DVI believes are necessary to move Downtown Jacksonville forward.
The four key points based on the eight tenets outlined in the paper are to:
- Focus on the core and build density
- Employ a holistic approach to revitalizing Downtown
- Create a compelling Downtown experience that generates pedestrian activity
- Place emphasis on projects that leverage private investment, especially in the core of Downtown.
