Florida: City of Jacksonville

Acronym:  JAX

Description:  As a rapidly growing municipality, Jacksonville is recognized as a national leader in managing development. Peyton formed a growth management task force in 2005 and is now focused on the committee's research and planning recommendations, which form a vision for the next 25 years. The overall strategy involves balancing commercial and residential development with transit and infrastructure capacity and the preservation of green space. Two bikers travel through the Rails to Trails preservation park.One of Jacksonville's many natural assets is one of the largest urban park systems in the country. The active and passive parks and preservation lands are a key part of Jacksonville's quality of life. So are the miles of beaches and waterways, a major symphony orchestra, a sports and entertainment complex downtown and a myriad of special events that this sports-loving city hosts each year. The home of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, the city welcomed its first Super Bowl in 2005. With a growing population, a strong economy, diverse cultural and recreational opportunities and abundant natural resources, Jacksonville continues to distinguish itself as one of the nation's most dynamic and progressive cities.
