One of the most important aspects of Jubilee is the opportunity to create a strong sense of community. The village is at the heart of everything. Jubilee is not just a housing development. It is a place of community, where neighbors look after neighbors and where front porches are preferred over back decks. It is a place that takes the best of yesterday and combines it with the technology and conveniences of today. We believe community is critical to our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, and we are pursuing a path that will preserve nature, connect families and simplify life to deliver a community that benefits residents and neighbors alike.
Pensacola is often referred to as the cradle of naval aviation and today the Department of Defense is our region’s largest economic engine, with the Naval Air Station, Saufley Field, Corry Station, Whiting Field and the Naval Hospital all struggling to fulfill the housing needs of our active duty military, our civilian contractors and our over 35,000 military retirees.
Jubilee is proud to be a member of the West Florida Defense Alliance’s Housing Committee working to solve the significant housing shortage our military neighbors are currently facing. A recent study conducted by Matrix Design Group concluded that there is housing crisis affecting defense communities in the U.S. Community leaders can leverage their unique capabilities to enhance mission performance, reduce costs and improve quality of life.
Jubilee will be a significant resource partner with Santa Rosa County to enhance the school system and provide a variety of attainable housing types for teachers in our county. Recent accreditation reports of Santa Rosa schools specifically point out challenges with overcrowded schools, rising ratios of students to teachers and an overall shortfall of experienced teachers.
Jubilee is pleased to be able to donate land and support the construction of multiple schools on the Jubilee property, including elementary schools, a middle school and a high school campus.
New jobs will offer the opportunity to create a medical campus, accessible schools, and infrastructure investments to address local challenges of traffic and stormwater abatement. This significant positive economic impact along with a wide range of housing will attract doctors and other health care workers, teachers and our cherished military community.
