Orange County, FL – Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs is hosting the first Regional Affordable Housing Workshop, which will take place on Friday, May 19, 2017. The workshop will help identify and explore affordable housing solutions in Central Florida. Identifying locations will be based on indicators such as proximity to public transportation, major employment centers and availability of community resources and services. A housing analysis and areas of opportunity will be presented and identified for the region.
Guest speakers for the event will include Bill O’Dell, director of Shimberg Center for Housing Studies, Alberto Vargas, planning manager for Orange County Government and Mitchell Glasser, manager of Housing and Community Development for Orange County Government.
