The Jacksonville Beautification Project
"Urban Spaces, Beautiful Places"

Currently, Late Bloomers is involved in a project whose mission is to transform Hemming Plaza and surrounding urban spaces into well maintained beautiful places that will improve the quality of life for everyone in Jacksonville.

The goal of this project is to bring together interested parties for a collaborative, comprehensive vision that brings beauty and economic vitality to the downtown core. The project team has conducted many meetings with city officials, community activists, business leaders, and board members including Mayor Brown, community leaders Preston Haskell & J. F. Bryan, UNF President and former Mayor John Delaney, the head of the Laura Street trio purchasing group Steve Atkins, members of the Downtown Investment Authority (DIA), City Council members and many others. Everyone included in these meetings has been supportive of the mission.
