City of Jacksonville


Public Facilities

The start of the 21st century found many of Jacksonville's notable public facilities were old and too small to adequately serve the area's growing population.

The Better Jacksonville Plan provided over half a billion dollars for new and improved public facilities, including the largest library expansion in the city's history.

All facility projects are complete.
