Problem DescriptionThis solution was created by the City of Jacksonville, Florida's Community Council (JCCI) as an attempt to take on a new civic engagement strategy all the while better understanding and solving some of the city's pressing issues. The specific JCCI programs that this solution documents are the "Inquiry" and "Implementation" programs. These were established as task forces that would bring in diverse volunteer experts to focus intensely on just one problem, and then implement solutions.
The Inquiry and Implementation model fostered by the JCCI has gained global notoriety by urban planners for its targeted effectiveness. To date, over 70 inquiries have been made. The program continues to run, with multiple inquiries occurring at any given time.
