“Dirty 30” properties cleaned up

Jacksonville, FL – On several occasions from 1996 to 2005, ICARE brought to the attention of the Mayor’s Office a number of infrastructure improvement areas identified by ICARE’s membership. Over 250 areas had been identified, including those that needed street repairs, removal of abandoned buildings, improved street lighting, and drainage improvements. In 2004, ICARE brought a list of 30 run down properties, “The Dirty 30,” to city officials. By the fall of 2005, full clean-up operations had been conducted in all of these areas.
