Jacksonville’s Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) has selected its first CEO, Aundra Wallace. The DIA’s focus is to revitalize Downtown Jacksonville. Wallace says that he wants to build up housing and foot traffic between buildings in order to add vitality to Downtown Jacksonville.
He says that he plans on doing this by building public spaces, trails, and bike paths, including on the St. John’s River to make the area livelier and attract people to the local retailers.
Before he can do this however, the plan must be approved by the City Counsel. Wallace originally said that he’d like to see Downtown Jacksonville’s redevelopment plan completed in his first 90 days on the job, but said that it would more likely be completed by the end of the year.
