With the Jacksonville City Council possibly considering extending the mobility fee moratorium, Metro Jacksonville shares a presentation that providing data suggesting that the moratorium has been a floundering failure, in regards to creating job growth and economic development in Jacksonville.

Between October 19, 2011 and September 12, 2011, City of Jacksonville Planning & Development Department records show that only 21% of mobility fee waivers have resulted in building permits. 70% of mobility fee waivers have not started design or have expired. In addition, the booming St. Johns Town Center area is considered a Transportation Management Area (TMA). The TMA is exempt from the waiver, meaning all of that new development has continued to pay a fee to take advantage of market opportunities around the town center. This information suggests that there may not be a rational nexus between the moratorium and market realities.
