August 7 - Housing Development and Affordability – Housing Affordability

   St. Petersburg Main Library, 3749 9th Ave. N., St. Petersburg, FL

   6:15 to 8 pm

You’re invited to participate in a community discussion regarding housing affordability. In response to growing concerns about housing affordability, the City has initiated a housing development and affordability initiative that will eventually include new and improved housing programs, text amendments to the City’s Land Development Regulations, and map amendments to the Citys Zoning and Future Land Use maps. Your participation in this process is important and encouraged.


Discuss affordability initiatives, including “linkage fees,” housing assistance programs, affordable housing initiatives in the South St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Area, and Penny for Pinellas affordable housing funding. Linkage fees” are impact fees charged to new development in relation to the affordable housing need created by the development. Revenue generated from linkage fees is used for the development of affordable housing.
