Future of Arlington - May 29th
« on: May 22, 2024, 05:51:00 PM »
Howdy.

Helping to plan his program on May 29th, thought some may be interested in attending. It's sold out, but there is comfortable standing room available as of now. Here's the promo:

Join us for Scenic Visions: The Future of Arlington on May 29th at Jacksonville University, where Arlington’s civic leaders, business leaders, and visionaries will discuss challenges, opportunities, and the potential of Jacksonville's Arlington community.

Moderator Joyce Morgan will be joined by panelists Tim Cost, president of Jacksonville University, Steve Matchett, executive director of Old Arlington Inc., Trish Kapustka, president of JAX Chamber Arlington Council, Rory Dubin, president of the NE Florida Association of Realtors, and Karen Nasrallah, redevelopment manager - City of Jacksonville.

The event is free, but seating is limited to 100 and is sold out! However, some standing room **is still available with registration**. Registration is required for each individual. Please visit Scenicjax.org to register.

This event is the finale of a three part series spotlighting the Arlington community of Jacksonville, Florida, brought to you by Scenic Jacksonville, Old Arlington Inc, JAX Chamber Arlington Council, Greater Arlington Civic Council, and Jacksonville University

So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

Looks like y’all had a surprise visit from the developer considering a purchase of the mall.

We invited him. He wasn't part of the panel, but I asked the panel a question about what they'd like too see happen at Regency Square Mall, and they deferred to Rurmell, because he was there.

It was a great program, 100+, with a few city council reps and COJ department heads in attendance. Lots of interest in improving our neighborhoods, generally speaking.

If this is your jam, mark Oct 10th on your calendar - the 2024 Great Cities Symposium returns.

Will there be a report on the Arlington meeting? Perhaps here?

Anyone know if what this potential ownership group is floating is in partnership with, or in conflict with, the soccer team's play for Regency?

That was somewhat covered near the end of the article linked.
