7th Annual JJMS Fashion Event
The BID thanks all of our Sponsors, Jamaica Avenue Retailers, Vendors, and the Community for making the 7th Annual JJMS Fashion Event, another success….See you next year!
The Jamaica Center Improvement Association was awarded an Active Arts Public Art Grant, and is inviting artists to submit their qualifications for consideration. The selected artist will engage with the community to produce a one-year long temporary, large-scale ground mural installation for the newly-activated Parsons Blvd. Public Space, (btw. Jamaica Avenue & Archer Avenue) in Downtown Jamaica.
As a part of the project, we are inviting you to be a part of a survey about living, working, and going to school in Jamaica Queens. Survey insights, along with stakeholder meetings, statistical reports, and workshops are key to developing a compelling brand and positioning strategy for Jamaica Queens.
Attached you will find the flyer for the survey which should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey can found online at: JamaicaQueens. All information will be confidential and all identifying information is removed before we analyze the results.
The council would appreciate your participation and assistance to promote the survey. The survey will close, July 11th.
We look forward to using this information to make Jamaica, Queens an even better place to live, work and play in the future.
