All interested in the future of our downtown riverfront, please attend this meeting!
Downtown Jacksonville Riverfront Parks Community Meeting
Hosted by Councilmembers Matt Carlucci and Randy DeFoor
Wednesday, August 25, 2021 from 5 – 7 p.m.
Jessie Ball duPont Center, 40 East Adams Street
Second Floor Lecture Hall
The duPont Fund will be presenting their preliminary work from the Riverfront Activation Study, which includes the Esplanade Conceptual Plan for the shipyards, and the Social, Cultural and Urban Design Principles for the entire waterfront.
Riverfront Parks Now supports the Esplanade Conceptual Plan and the public space principles which align with our coalitions’ 10-point Plan outlined in a recent Guest Column in the Florida Times Union.
The Esplanade Plan fulfills our vision of a Riverfront for All by applying well-thought-out social, cultural and urban planning principles while incorporating suggestions from the initial community engagement. This is not yet a firm park plan as community engagement is still underway. There are still opportunities for you to get involved to help shape the features and amenities of the space.
Come to share your thoughts, ask questions and engage – city leaders need to hear from you.
The in-person meeting will have limited seating capacity, but a zoom option is available: Meeting ID 960 4549 7612.
