Pensacola City Council Receives Recommendations from Affordable Housing Task Force

In order to successfully fulfill their goal of “Creating 500 Homes in 5 Years”, the city of Pensacola will need to lead a cohesive land use, financing, and strategic partnership framework to carry out its vision, details the Final Report of the Pensacola Affordable Housing Task Force. On Thursday, representatives from the Florida Housing Coalition presented the Task Force’s findings to the City Council. The Affordable Housing Task Force, made up of twelve local leaders and stakeholders, was formed in early 2020 with a goal of creating “500 homes in 5 years”, and brought in the Florida Housing Coalition to help guide the research and development phase of the Task Force’s work.
