Jacques Coulon, the Mobility Innovation Manager with the City of Orlando, will be discussing micro mobility, new technology, and other innovations in the transportation industry. Food will be provided.
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.
