Eastside

Historic Community

 
 
 

The historic Eastside Community was founded in 1887 and is located East of Downtown Jacksonville and the Historic Springfield Community.  Eastside is home to Jacksonville's major entertainment hubs such as:  TIAA Stadium, Daily’s Place Concert Venue, the Jacksonville Fairgrounds, and the Jacksonville Arena and the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.

In 2012 the Historic Eastside was selected by LISC Jacksonville, in collaboration with Operation New Hope, as one of two neighborhoods to introduce the Sustainable Communities model to Jacksonville, with EPIC Communities (Empower People...Inspire Change). The program's five pillars include:
1. improving access to quality education;
2. fostering livable, safe, healthy environments;
3. developing, preserving and investing in the physical environment;
4. increasing family income and wealth; and
5. stimulating economic activity.
