The Design Committee helps to keep the Jacksonville Main Street District in top physical condition. Capitalizing on its best assets - such as historic buildings and pedestrian-oriented streets - is just part of the story. An inviting atmosphere, created through attractive window displays, public art, building improvements, street furniture, signs, sidewalks, street lights, and landscaping, conveys a positive visual image of the historic central business district and all its unique characteristics and attributes. Design Committee projects help instill good maintenance practices in the commercial district while enhancing the physical appearance of the commercial district by finding new uses for old buildings and encouraging appropriate new construction, plus developing sensitive design management systems and long-term planning.
