Most of us know that consolidation made Jacksonville huge; current estimates put Jacksonville at 907,529 in the city, and 1,626,611 for Greater Jacksonville. Does anyone think Jacksonville will annex future areas of the city, preferably ones that are on the far North, South and West sides of town? Annexation would contribute further to Jacksonville's growth.


If Jacksonville and Duval County weren't consolidated, Jacksonville would have 700K-750k at best.

I don't get the point of that. If Miami-Dade County weren't consolidated the City of Miami would consist of only 450K versus 2.6 million. Annexation isn't key to MSA growth, unfortunately it's sprawl and I think to many that's a positive rather than some kind of negative.

Why would Jacksonville annex more land, they already have 95% of Duval. Any additional annexations would be from an adjacent county. Not gonna happen

I got the population estimate from the US Census website.

Not saying it will happen, it's just a thought.

With the exception of the Beaches Communities and Baldwin, everything inside of Duval County is Jacksonville. There is nothing left to annex unless you are referring to Nassau, Baker, Clay, and St Johns Counties. That probably won't happen with out a pretty good fight.

Isn't Jax the largest city in the US by land mass?

I was under the impression that the City of Jacksonville is all of Duvall County which isn't developed out yet. How would they justify trying to take adjoining communities? Virginia Beach is the same way making it the largest Resort City in the country.
