Jacksonville, Florida, Mayor John Delaney, who initiated the $2.2 billion Better Jacksonville Plan, is preparing to step down from office. After eight years at the helm of Florida's first consolidated city-county government, Delaney must step down because of term limits, but the city's ambitious 10-year growth management program is expected to go on. Approximately $540 million of Better Jacksonville Plan sales tax revenue bonds have been sold as of April 15, 2003. The plan includes $ 1.5 billion for transportation projects and $525 million in other infrastructure projects such as a $ 125 million sports arena, a $ 25 million baseball stadium, and a $ 190 million courthouse complex, as well as funds for libraries, improvements to the local zoo, and $ 225 million that is being used for economic development and environmental projects.
