The City of Jacksonville’s Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) was created to revitalize Jacksonville’s urban core by utilizing Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) resources. Guided by a nine-member board of directors, the DIA seeks to attract investment, facilitate job creation and increase residential density through capital investments, planning, advocacy, marketing and the establishment of policy for the general community and Downtown stakeholders.

The State of Downtown

As Downtown grows, so does its impact on the region.

Each year, Downtown Vision tracks and analyzes Downtown’s performance in key indicators of urban revitalization, such as development, employment and residential.
