Jacksonville’s riverfront transformation has been long-discussed. But the difference now, says Build Up Downtown Director Laura Edgecomb, is that plans have moved beyond renderings and they have momentum.

“Riverfront 2025: A Look Ahead” will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Jacksonville Main Public Library Downtown.
