Deegan announced her six-member transition team co-chairs May 25. She directed them to develop policies that move forward the vision of a healthy, safe, resilient, inclusive and innovative city.

The transition committees focused on infrastructure; health; economic development; public safety; arts, culture, and entertainment; constituency and community outreach; and military and veterans affairs.

The committee leaders include current and former JEA, City Council and Duval County School Board leaders; higher education, medical, legal and nonprofit professionals; and a retired military officer.

After reviewing the challenges Jacksonville faces, and the opportunities available to address them, the committees identified policy solutions to enable all residents to have a good quality of life, the release said.

The transition report is a compilation of their findings. It highlights the mayor’s values and provides an idea of what her administration will prioritize.

“The recommendations in this report have been a true community-wide effort, and I look forward to moving our shared priorities forward,” Deegan said in the release.

“We are already putting many of these recommendations into practice. The 2024-2028 Capital Improvement Plan includes infrastructure projects that make good on the broken promises of consolidation while ensuring smart, resilient development as Jacksonville grows,” she said.

“And, the 2023-2024 General Fund Budget is moving the dial on literacy, affordable housing, homelessness, healthcare, small businesses, veterans, arts, culture, and so much more.”
