Special Committee on the Community Benefits Agreement


As part of the discussion surrounding 2024-904-E, the Stadium Renovations legislation, as Council President, I am establishing a Special Committee to review the associated Community Benefits Agreement and any related legislation. The Community Benefits Agreement will be a historic investment between the City and the Jaguars, and it is imperative that the Agreement is thoroughly evaluated. As President, I want to ensure these key investments will pay dividends over the decades to come and that all residents of Jacksonville are positively impacted. The Special Committee Charge is included below. Additionally, I have outlined herein the Council process we will follow for the legislation. I am committed to ensuring a swift and robust review and discussion takes place.


The Special Committee of the City Council on the Community Benefits Agreement, is hereby charged to address the following questions/matters:

1. Explore all available options as they relate to the Community Benefits Agreement and legislation.

2. Review and recommend any necessary amendments to the Community Benefits Agreement and legislation.

The Special Committee may seek advice from both public and private subject matter experts and should encourage maximum public participation in its work.
I would like to thank Council Member Raul Arias for chairing this Special Committee. Thank you to each of the Council Members and staff who make the commitment to serve on this important committee. As Council President, I plan to participate in the meetings as needed.


 The Special Committee on the Community Benefits Agreement is tasked to report its findings and recommendations on these matters on or before August 27, 2024.
