JAXPORT’s Board holds cruise terminal workshop
January 26, 2009
Prior to today’s January meeting of JAXPORT’s Board of Directors, port staff and economic consultants presented a detailed look at the cruise industry in Jacksonville, Fla. Below, you’ll find links to the three Powerpoint presentations that were presented during the meeting.
- The artist renderings in the first presentation were included to present the scale of the project, NOT the actual design and architecture of a proposed terminal in Mayport.
- The market outlook includes projections, but JAXPORT currently does not have cruise contracts beyond its current contract with Carnival Cruise Lines for passenger service aboard the Carnival Fascination.
During the January Board meeting which followed the workshop, JAXPORT’s Board heard comments from the public and passed a measure authorizing JAXPORT staff to request quotes for the design and construction of a cruise terminal in the Mayport area. This will refine initial estimates to let the Board know exactly how much it will cost to build a cruise terminal. At a future Board meeting, Board Members will vote on whether or not to proceed with actual design and construction.
