2. Recognize the service, courage and patriotism of African American Veterans through the construction of the Community and Veterans Empowerment Center.
3. Lead in making the Kings Road and Myrtle Avenue corridor, including Edward Waters College, an economic empowerment hub and vibrant neighborhood through further redevelopment and job creation.
4. Assemble a dynamic and results driven collaborative partnership with stakeholders to help plan and guide activities.
The Jacksonville community is invited to participate in establishing the foundation for Kings Road-Myrtle Avenue Initiative that will ultimately lead to solutions facing many underserved communities who suffer because of the deep-rooted problems connected to a lack of access to resources and individual prosperity.
