Jacques Coulon has had the pleasure of working with the City of Orlando since 2015. Jacques left his  previous job with Lockheed Martin where he was a grants review administrator for discretionary grants  with the Department of Justice and was hired as a Planner 1 in the Planning Department’s Land  Development Studio where he worked on a number of masterplan, variance and conditional use permit  cases as a project planner. After two years in this role, Jacques was promoted and moved to the Urban  Design Studio where he led the planning department’s efforts on permit reviews including ROW and  small call permits, ensuring consistency with the City’s code, design and installation standards. In 2020  an opportunity to join the Transportation Planning Division opened up and Jacques moved to serve as a  Transportation Planning Projects Coordinator providing guidance and review on development cases  headed to any of the City’s planning boards. 

Since 2022 Jacques has led the City’s efforts on preparing for emerging transportation technologies such  as Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) and works on a variety of  transportation planning efforts including the City’s planned Lake Highland/Alden Road realignment  project and Edgewater Drive Complete Street project. Outside of City Hall Jacques serves on the Open  Mobility Foundation’s (OMF) Strategic Planning Committee and is a member of the Advisory Board for  UCF’s MSURP program. Jacques is a proud graduate of the University of Central Florida where he earned  a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration and a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning.
