The Jacksonville City Council agreed Tuesday to offer $7.7 million in incentives to an autonomous vehicle company to build a manufacturing and assembly plant in the city. 

The 18-1 vote approved incentives for Project Link, the company’s code name in city documents, to construct a $100 million, 450,000-square-foot plant on about 40 acres in Northwest Jacksonville. The sole no vote came from council member Rory Diamond. The vote constituted final approval of the package.
