Charge

The wellbeing of Jacksonville’s citizens continues to be a priority of the City Council and particularly during my tenure of Council President Freeman. Like so many other communities, three issues that continue to plague us as a community are access to healthcare, affordable housing and homelessness, factors which are clearly interrelated.

Following the model of the 2020-2021 Special Committee on Resiliency, where working groups led by Council Members, were established to address specific issues, I am hereby creating a Special Committee to Address Critical Quality of Life Issues (CQLI), with the assistance of subject matters experts in each of the fields, to address the following questions:

1. What is the scope of each issue?
2. What are entities within the public, private and nonprofit sector currently doing to address each issue?
3. What best practices or policies have other communities adopted that may assist us in addressing each issue?

Deadline 

The results and recommendations of the CQLI Special Committee will be provided in a report to the Council at the December 13, 2022, Council meeting.
