Metro Jacksonville's Ennis Davis has been selected by Next City to be a part of their 2013 Vanguard Class. Next City is a non-profit media organization dedicated to connecting cities and informing the people who work to improve them.



Next City provides daily online coverage of public policy and current affairs from an urbanist perspective.  Each year, Next City selects 40 people under 40 to their Vanguard Class who have demonstrated their ability to have an impact on their city or the national dialogue about urban issues and bring them together for an inspiring series of presentations, workshops, tours and other activities. The 2013 Vanguard class, along with Vanguard alumni, will meet in Cleveland in June for workshops, local tours and an “unconference” to collectively learn and think about how to improve our cities. This year's event is made possible with support from Positively Cleveland, the Downtown Cleveland Alliance and the Gund Foundation.
