Investments to benefit neighborhood served by EWC
Demonstrating his continued commitment to safer neighborhoods and communities, Mayor Lenny Curry joined Edward Waters College (EWC) President Nat Glover and City officials to announce one of his Safer Neighborhoods investments that will benefit the northwest Jacksonville community. The City of Jacksonville’s 2017-18 budget includes support for safety improvements and infrastructure enhancements at the local college that is Florida's oldest independent institution of higher learning established for the education of African Americans. More than $8 million has been committed to support the university’s efforts to refurbish a long-challenged dormitory and build a community field.
