WEBINAR- Affordable Housing Innovations in HB 7103
July 22, 2019 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us for the webinar “Affordable Housing Innovations in HB 7103” on July 22 at 2 pm.
The major piece of affordable housing legislation to come out of the 2019 session is House Bill 7103. This “omnibus housing bill” throws together in one bill inclusionary zoning, impact fees, and expedited permitting. The bill also makes a substantial change to the attorneys’ fees and court costs provision associated with bringing a challenge to a development order. This section of the bill has little or nothing to do with affordable housing.
The webinar will focus on items most impactful for affordable housing:
- Inclusionary zoning – how to craft an ordinance that meets the new law;
- Impact fees- timing for collection (new provision) and exemption for affordable housing;
- Expedited permitting—this section applies to all development, not just affordable housing, clarity will be provided about what impact that has on the requirement to expedite permitting in accordance with SHIP requirements.
The webinar will briefly mention the state housing finance strategy for the Keys and the legislative definition for “essential services personnel,” which takes the place of locally determined definitions, as well as the private provider provisions related inspections and building permits.
