ETJ Reduction 2020
The City of Jacksonville has initiated an amendment to the City’s Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) boundary. The amendment would remove 337 parcels from five areas around the City. The majority of the parcels within the ETJ reduction areas are single family residential dwellings and approximately one half of all parcels are undeveloped.
