Update as of April 17, 2019
Metro Jax Florida was not the winner of the Smart City Readiness Challenge this month. Instead, Racine, WI was selected as the winner. North Florida which includes Metro Jax was selected as a finalist and the plans for downtown Jacksonville, including Innovation Corridor and the Shipyard etc is very much still underway. Exciting things are happening in downtown Metro Jax and surrounding areas so look out for updates.
Metro Jax Florida is strategically placing itself to become the Nation’s Smartest City.
Development in Metro Jax has become a concern for locals who fear over-development, crowded schools and strained infrastructure. While it has been a concern for many, new evidence shows are very different trend in the making.
The NFTPO (North Florida Transportation Planning Organization) along with local government, have been transforming their way of planning and developing infrastructure to cause a new realm of what is possible for Jacksonville, Florida. Lifestyle is the focus and making better use of technology is the access.
In addition to being recognized for some of the finest public education in the state of Florida, Metro Jax could soon be recognized as one of the Smartest Cities in America. While more roads, more lanes, more schools and more jobs are already funded and scheduled, the focus has been in an entire new arena of technology.
With Innovation Corridor underway, data and analytics will soon be utilized to make living and working in Northeast Florida effortless and simple by making better use of technology already here. This technology will make the city safer, more efficient and make better use of its resources. The Bay Jax is a three mile stretch of entertainment, business and residential corridor in downtown Metro Jax. The Bay Jax will be the test site for technologies to be implemented throughout the rest of Northeast Florida.
Metro Jax will be the new player in technology development placing Jacksonville at the top of technology development cities.
Since Jacksonville has started getting attention, it has created a 17% increase in air traffic alone in the last year at Jacksonville International Airport, a bustling local economy and a boom in the local housing market triggering plans for an expansion to add six additional gates. A new exciting momentum has begun in Jacksonville and surrounding areas.
