Jacksonville and Onslow County leaders are getting a look at what the future of the downtown may look like. The Lawerence Group is presenting final recommendations to revamp downtown. The proposal includes new transportation, new housing, new commerical space, growth strategies, plans that center around the river, and focus on what assets Jacksonville already has. The plan also would tear down, dilapidated and run down structures. A number of the projects and upgrades should be completed by 2011.
