A recent session titled, “Destination Riverfront: Activating the St. Johns” was hosted by the North Florida chapter of the Urban Land Institute and the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.  Held at the Haskell Building with a view of the river, a Standing Room Only crowd listened as visitors from Oklahoma City described the transformation of their city from an investment in their river.

The panel discussion began with an introduction by Audrey Moran, 2016 Jacksonville Chamber Chair and concluded with a lively question and answer period from the audience and closing remarks by Tom Ingram, 2016 Urban Land Institute North Florida Chair.

Dr. Quinton White, executive director, Jacksonville University Marine Science Research Institute, and one of the panelists, encouraged participants to complete a survey to guide the team drafting the Jacksonville Maritime Management Plan. The survey can be found here.
