Review for North Florida Land Trust, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA
Not only does the North Florida Land Trust do a great job in facilitating the conservation of land resources in NE Florida, but it also did a wonderful thing in providing the needed financial and human capital needed to bring the Old Brewster Hospital in downtown Jacksonville back to life. This building and its long history are an important part of the heritage of the Lavilla district. The Land Trust's determination and patience in working with the City on this renovation has demonstrated its willingness and ability to see important projects through. The Trust's commitment to occupy the building, bringing visibility and vibrancy to an important intersection, will also put the Trust staff closer to the center of civic activity. Its unique perspective to urban conservation efforts like Brewster and Hogans Creek are evidence of its creativity and persistence in accomplishing its larger conservation objectives.
