Land Use Planning
The Florida Housing Coalition has worked with numerous local governments in analyzing and amending their planning documents and land development regulations to create a regulatory atmosphere that encourages and assists affordable housing development. We provide recommendations and documents for land use planning, development procedures, and assist local governments meet their statutory obligations to plan for the future housing needs of their jurisdictions.
We help local communities:
The Florida Housing Coalition recognizes that development of housing that is affordable cannot occur without a working relationship with the private sector. The LAND team assists local governments devise incentive strategies to encourage private developers to build housing that is affordable by leveraging federal and state dollars, utilizing surplus lands, lessening regulatory requirements, expediting permitting processes, devising inclusionary zoning ordinances, and through other tools.
