Why? What for? I don't care whether it's "pop up" or not, but an ice skating rink in downtown Jacksonville? And on the riverfront on prime property/real estate to boot. We're Jacksonville not Caribou Maine. Southerners and Floridians mostly live in Jax not Northerners last I checked or known. I don't get it. Who in hell comes up with these lain brain ideas?! Certainly not Southerners, or Floridians, probably some pompous butt heads from up North who moved or relocated here and now are integral members of our City Hall and the Mayor's Administration (or Lori Boyer's transplants...don't know where she's from). But this needs to stop. If anything else other than an Office Tower or Entertainment or Shopping Complex gets built there, ensure that it stays within the theme and confines of the South, Florida, Palm Trees, St. John's River, our heritage, our roots, and our history!!!

Lastly, and yes, Tampa has an ice rink. But they have more transplants from up north and everywhere else, and tourists, and snowbirds, and NORTHERNERS to justify building such an abomination in their downtown. We need to keep it real here in Jacksonville as I mentioned two posts ago. Am I upset? Yes I am.

Is the general public welcome to this? Is that conference room big enough to accommodate the general public? I would like to attend and get a feel of the City Leaders, Design Firms, etc., and see how regimented and organized these meetings are, and what is said and the responses from the City. Someone please advise. Thanks.

The library's website doesn't mention the size or capacity of the meeting room - just the rental rates.

If it's the room I recall at ground level, it appears it could accommodate at least a couple of hundred persons in auditorium style seating.

guys - it would be a temporary installation a few months a year - and given that the "cold" months have fewer festivals, this makes perfect sense!

Thanks "Tuf," I might just ZOOM in on the conference rather than make a physical show.

So the competition design presentations are today, with a Zoom meeting scheduled from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The meeting details were posted, but if you try to join the meeting, you get an error in Zoom saying the host has locked the meeting.

I guess you're only allowed to engage with the process as a citizen if you can afford to take an entire day off work to attend this meeting.

Apparently you have to login before or after the actual presentations, can't join during. Three seperate presentations today.
