Jacksonville, FL

JacksonvilleJacksonville also has an early history of city–county consolidation and hence some degree of regional governance. The region has a long history of private/public collaboration and significant public sector (military) employment that provides an economic buffer to hard times. What is most impressive about Jacksonville is a highly effective and long-lasting com- munity council that has built a shared sense of regional destiny and created collaborative processes to determine public policy responses to the region’s social and economic challenges.
