In their own words: JEDC on revitalization of downtown

Posted: April 7, 2013 - 12:09am

The Juneau Economic Development Coucil has served as a gathering place for those concerned about revitalization of the downtown area and its neighbor, the Willoughby District.

Below is the group’s own history of the effort, and the accompanying chart indicates the group’s progress so far on the issues.

History

Since 2010, a group of Juneau citizens with concerns about the health and vitality of downtown Juneau met several times to discuss their concerns and options available to revitalize the downtown area. JEDC facilitated these meetings which were aimed at developing approaches to addressing the identified issues. Smaller groups of committed people have worked together to extend the work of the original group, defining a vision for downtown and understanding and researching four areas of particular interest to them. Below is a summary of these efforts to date.

Problem Statement

Increasingly fewer Juneau citizens consider downtown as a primary center for living, leisure and business.

Vision Statement

Our vision is that Juneau borough residents will utilize the downtown area as THE primary year-round hub for living, leisure, government and business.
