Welcome to the Downtown Investment Authority (DIA)

Great cities have great downtowns. The Downtown Investment Authority was created to revitalize Jacksonville's urban core by utilizing Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) resources to spur economic development. The DIA’s projects will be guided by a nine-member board of directors who will conduct open-to-the-public business on an unpaid, volunteer basis. Of the nine, five are appointed by the mayor and four by the council president. All nine are confirmed by the Jacksonville City Council.

Note: The City of Jacksonville and the Downtown Investment Authority are committed to making its website compliant with all state and federal laws, as well as accessible to as many people as possible. The City is currently developing a procedure to make all documents posted on the City’s website readable via screen reader. In the meantime, public records that are not currently accessible via screen reader will not be posted to the City’s website but remain available pursuant to a public records request. To submit a public records request online visit MyJax or call (904) 630-CITY and provide a description of the documents being requested. For documents requiring screen reader compatibility requests will be directed to the originator of the correspondence.
