Gainesville is the largest city and county seat of Alachua County, where it
spans an area of 62.4 square miles. Home to the University of Florida, Santa
Fe College and UF Health, Gainesville also serves as a cultural, educational,
medical and commercial center for the North Central Florida region as well
as the entire state of Florida.
In addition to its proximity to some of the most popular Florida beaches,
Gainesville proudly boasts its many world-class springs to tourists and visitors.
These springs, along with the urban “forests,” compose the beautiful landscape
that defines Gainesville as one of the most attractive cities in Florida.
Gainesville’s initiative is to define a new kind of city – a New American
City. Officials hope to make Gainesville an inspiring model for other communities
and, most importantly, the best home possible for its beloved residents.
How do you see Gainesville in their future as a New American City? What
would you do to achieve that? The city is inviting you to be an influential part
of their cutting-edge movement to become the iconic example of the true
New American City. Share your thoughts with comments@cityofgainesville.
