Second workshop set on stadium renovation

Published on June 10, 2024 at 2:23 pm

Jacksonville City Council will meet again this week to consider the $1.4 billion agreement to renovate EverBank Stadium.

Council president Ron Salem has scheduled a workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. The second session will be canceled if all agenda items are considered earlier.

The agenda includes a presentation on the community benefits portion of the deal. The agreement provides for the city and the Jaguars to each put up $150 million toward workforce development, park upgrades, affordable housing and more across Duval County.

A poll last month from the University of North Florida found that 56% of respondents supported the stadium package if it includes money for community investment. Without the community benefits, support dropped to 41%.

This is the second workshop the council has held on the agreement. The first was last week.
