Starting this MONDAY, August 29 we begin a new check-in process.
When you collect your badge you will be asked to scan the bar code on the back of the badge.
Please bear with us as we improve our overall club attendance accountability.
On Monday, October 10 new changes on where members may park for free will go into effect. The new location is in the new SunTrust Center Parking Garage at the corner of Bay and Hogan Streets.
October 10 (Columbus Day) is the first meeting we will hold in October at the Omni Hotel.
Each Monday signs will be placed at the SunTrust garage indicating Rotary parking. The garage has an entrance and an exit on Bay and Hogan making getting in an out of the garage quicker and more convenient.
Walking from the garage to the Omni requires crossing Hogan street to the covered east entrance of the Omni building.
No longer will members be able to park in the Omni parking garage under our previous subsidized parking arrangement with the hotel.
Help us spread the word so no one is caught off-guard when they arrive for the first meeting in October.
IlluminateJax! Advocacy Group With a Bright Idea?
IlluminateJax! planning team discusses plans for lighting up the downtown nights.
IlluminateJAX! is a program its supporters say "attempts to lift the rising tides of the common fate of property owners downtown by seeking to artfully illuminate the entire North Bank skyline." Orgaizations suchas the Jaguars have given IlluminateJAX! their support in an effort to subsidize the costs of illumination in order to capture game day lighting and messaging across the downtown Jacksonville skyline.
IlluminateJAX! intends to:
1. Create branding opportunities for corporate relocation;
2. Assist property owners in marketing their office towers;
3. Create Game Day messaging for the Jaguars, who have agreed to assist in underwriting the cost of installation for each property owner who agrees to illuminate their towers;
4. Create city pride;
5. Foster a higher sense of safety with soft and appealing lighting;
5. With new LED lights and remote control settings, an entire city skyline can be artfully controlled through lighting, which would be both magical and informing.
