The summer heat in Jacksonville is slowly approaching, and it’s only getting hotter. Urban heat, driven by climate change, is now classified as a public health threat. The city of Jacksonville and the University of North Florida are partnering on a new heat mapping study that officials hope will reveal which parts of town are most threatened by extreme heat.
