Specifically, the proposed District redevelopment, four years in the making, with construction proposed to wrap by the end of 2022.

Council President Anna Brosche, when she took over the gavel last July, identified parks as a priority; the committee continues to explore ways to restore Jacksonville’s massive though unevenly maintained system of 400 parks, one that ranks among the worst in […]

Three year old Amari Harley and 74 year old Ashley Miller Kraan had very little in common — except that they both drew their last breaths in Jacksonville parks this fall. Harley fell down a hole above a septic tank; the rubber lid was missing. Kraan was stabbed in broad daylight by a man with mental issues. Park […]

On Friday, LeAnna Cumber filed paperwork to launch a long-expected campaign for Jacksonville City Council. Cumber, a well-connected Republican, will be running to replace termed-out Lori Boyer in Council District 5. Notable: This is Mayor Lenny Curry‘s Council district.

Friday saw the Jacksonville City Council Finance Committee move toward wrapping up budget deliberations. However, there was still some unfinished business with various departments.
