City of Jacksonville Vision Plan and Future Land Use Plan

Jacksonville, FL

In response to the Mayor’s initiative to address growth management and reinvest in the disinvested communities in the largest city in the Country, the Jacksonville City Planning Department was charged with completing vision plans for the three most rapidly growing planning districts in the City and to overhaul the Future Land Use Element and Map to reflect these visions. Working with three separate steering committees, Zyscovich developed both a vision and implementing tool through the FLUM and FLUE.

The plans have achieved the following outcomes:

Created an overall vision for corridor and nodal development citywide to enhance connectivity.

Developed concepts to reconnect neighborhoods.

Prioritized and redirected growth according to four development areas from the central urban core to suburban and agricultural lands.

Developed a series of implementable action items for three planning districts in the City.

Adopted a mechanism to implement the vision through the FLUE and FLUM.

Identified major projects, parks, and development opportunities in each of the planning districts.

Garnered community-wide support.
