What is this project about? Understanding and combating visual pollution. Here are some excerpts from the website for the City Beautiful Jax NIVP Program. http://citybeautifuljax.org/nivp-program.htm.
Individual citizens are often frustrated by community degradation through visual pollution, which may come about through neglect, an intentional act, or simply the failure to take advantage of an opportunity for the creation of beauty.
A saying has developed, “we get used to ugly.” However, when you resist this “getting used to” syndrome, your eyes may easily be drawn to a parade of visual blight.
The City Beautiful Coalition, Inc.’s NIVP Program represents a proven method by which community groups and interested citizens can come together for a purpose: to become better educated on sources of blight and then canvas a neighborhood and collect at one time a single list of the sources of visual pollution that should be redressed by appropriate authorities or, in some cases, by other volunteer groups.
We will meet at the Wells Fargo Community Center at 1601 N. Main Street, 2nd Floor at 9 on June 2. Please join us for this important project!

Sweet Pete’s, Jacksonville’s only all natural sweet shoppe is excited to host its first art show. The company’s founder, Peter Behringer has lived in Jacksonville since childhood and opened Sweet Pete’s in Historic Springfield last year. As Peter spent more time in Springfield and the urban core he became increasingly impressed with Jacksonville’s art movement. After attending the Riverside Arts Market and the Downtown Art Walk, Peter decided he wanted to show appreciation for the local artists who are working hard to grow art awareness in Jacksonville.
Peter shared his excitement with a customer and lifelong painter, Deborah Reid. As luck would have it, Deborah also curates monthly art shows at Zodiac Grill as a charity fundraiser for Jacksonville Legal Aid. Deborah encouraged Peter to host an art show at Sweet Pete’s and they decided together the show’s theme should focus on Jacksonville Landmarks and/or candy.
The Art show @ Sweet Pete’s will host 15 artists. Sweet Pete’s will offer samples of their all natural candies and chocolates along with chocolate & candy Martinis. The show will also feature live music by local band Fainted Paces.

Ahh! Spring! The balmy weather, the flowers, the birds, and all that comes with them. With the grand opening of Main Street Car Wash, Silas Jones and his wife, Betty, are bringing their expertise in the car wash business to Springfield. Mr. and Mrs. Jones have been in the car wash business since 1978.
Mr. Jones worked for the Duval County School Board for 40 years, holding such positions as assistant principal and principal. But during that time, Mr. Jones owned and operated two different car washes. The Main Street Car Wash, on the corner of 4th Street and Main Street, is his third car wash and it has been a long time coming.
The property was originally a car wash which opened in 1954 by the Lindsey family and was the second automatic car wash opened in Jacksonville. When Mr. Jones purchased the property in 1995, the building was in bad shape and the lot was terribly overgrown. Over the years, he worked on the property until he was finally ready to get the car wash operational. However, unbeknowst to him, the zoning for the property had changed and a car wash could not be operated at that location. Mr. Jones worked for two and one-half years to get the his variance and finally, the City Council agreed.
With new landscaping, paint and the latest equipment, the Main Street Car Wash is ready to provide you with the best service to keep your car looking good. They offer free self-serve vacuums and air and an automatic wash for $6 in 6 minutes. They also offer a full range of services, including a full service hand wash and wax for that brand new car you just bought.
The grand opening is scheduled for March 3rd at 8:00 a.m. See you and your dirty car there!
