In 2014, the redevelopment in and around downtown finally kicked into an extra gear. Looking forward to 2015, here are five projects and points of discussion that have the potential to.....as Mayor Alvin Brown would say... "take Jacksonville to the next level".
4. Time to $#*! or Get Off the Downtown Redevelopment Pot
They say downtown revitalization is a marathon and not a sprint. While we agree, marathons shouldn't last for 40 years. Traditionally, Jacksonville has blown a lot of hot air when it comes to talking about downtown revitalization. When the time arrives to put our money where our mouth has been, we've been a no show.

We'll find out soon enough if it's time for us to get off the pot.
