Our Jax Criticizes Proposed Lot J Deal; Election 2020; Stage Aurora

Nov 2, 2020

The civic group, Our Jax is the latest to criticize the proposed development of Lot J, which would turn the sports complex parking lot into a residential, retail and entertainment complex.  

Our Jax is calling the proposed $450 million Lot J development, along with the failed attempt to sell JEA, and a recent flap over the county’s canvassing board, part of a failure of governance. Jacksonville City Councilman Matt Carlucci and attorney Audrey Moran of the civic group Our Jax joined us to discuss all of it.
