The Florida legislature recently passed a law that restricts local governments’ authority to control the development of affordable housing projects in their communities. This could significantly reduce the power of local governments to initiate meaningful regulations around creating or revising affordable housing projects.
Certain state law degrees have been limited in response. Local governments may no longer require any additional review or permits that would lead to costly fees, nor may they require any reviews of design plans for any of the housing projects. Any attempts to limit funding streams for such projects is also restricted. The restrictions are not based on zoning laws or building codes.
• Local governments’ authority to regulate and review the development of affordable housing projects reduced
• Relief from fees, permitting processes, design reviews, and funding restrictions now in place
• Restrictions not based on zoning laws or building codes
