Metro Jacksonville has learned that a bill has been recently filed to extend the mobility fee moratorium. The moratorium was enacted last year by City Council which viewed it as Jacksonville's stimulus package, however it passed the financial burden of new development from the developer to the taxpayer. It was believed that subsidizing new construction of any kind would lead to more jobs. However, the job creation and development promised by the mobility fee moratorium has failed to materialize. If allowed to rightfully expire this month, here is a list of potential capital improvement projects that the mobility fee is designed to bring to each neighborhood and area of Jacksonville.
