Jax2025 Community Visioning Event #1
January 19, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Every great city has a vision of itself and what it will be. In Jacksonville, we aren’t what we were, and we don’t know what we want to be. But we do know this: we won’t stay the same. Now is the time to decide what kind of community we want to be in the year 2025. JAX2025 is not just about creating a vision; it’s about creating our future.
What kind of Jacksonville do we want to create? Twenty years ago, Jacksonville residents came together for the Jacksonville Insight process, which resulted in River City Renaissance and many improvements downtown. Today, however, Jacksonville lacks a shared vision of what the city could be and how we will get there. Now is the time for Jacksonville residents to shape our own destiny.
JAX2025 is a community-owned and -driven initiative funded entirely by private donations. It is facilitated by JCCI – the Jacksonville Community Council Inc. and belongs to everyone in the city. Every resident will have an opportunity to contribute to making the JAX2025 vision a reality. JCCI, an organization with a 37-year history of validated research and consensus-building to create community change, will facilitate Jax2025 from visioning through execution.
JAX2025 is about action and change. It’s about becoming the city we could be by creating a shared vision, finding solutions and making them real, and identifying leaders for our future.
We are asking that every resident of Jacksonville participate in this process by taking the community survey, by requesting a presentation to your civic, business, social, faith, school or community group, and by participating in at least one of four community meetings.
You CAN make a difference.
