WELCOME OFFICE OF THE MAYOR LENNY CURRY Dear Residents: Welcome to Florida’s First Coast! On behalf of the beautiful city of Jacksonville, I thank you for choosing our corner of Northeast Florida. As the gateway to Florida, we are a business-minded city where people work hard every day to ensure a brighter future for their families. Top-notch recreation, sports and entertainment venues, arts and cultural activities — all make Jacksonville a favorite vacation spot and an even greater place to live and work. Home to the largest urban park system in the nation, the greater Jacksonville area also features many natural treasures, including the majestic St. Johns River and miles of pristine beaches. Jacksonville is open for business and remains a city of opportunity for all. The hardworking entrepreneurs, business owners and innovators of this great city ensure that Jacksonville remains a top competitor. Together, we are seizing the potential within our reach by supporting a shared vision and spirit of partnership for building “One City. One Jacksonville.” As you will see in the pages of this year’s guide, the Jacksonville community is as diverse as it is vibrant, with many unique offerings. Again, thank you for choosing Jacksonville. From my family to yours, welcome! Sincerely, 6 | 2017 DISCOVER JACKSONVILLE Lenny Curry Mayor
