Another program that needs to be implemented in Jacksonville is the deconstruction of building that have to come down (you cant save them all) so the materials can be reused in other historic buildings. Currently the city bulldozes them down and send them to a landfill

I think you're forgetting about the super glued pieces of the torn down buildings that were on site, stuck on the side of the new library.

There might be a few isolated attempts to reuse some of the city's history but the vast majority are just trash to them. I have seen at least 10 houses come down and haul to the landfill with the exception of what I was able to pull out of the pile that was once a 100 year old house
