Nomination of Planning and Zoning Commissioner to Affordable Housing Advisory Committee

 

body

BRIEF OVERVIEW

The Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) is an advisory committee to the Board of County Commissioners established by Section 420.9076, Florida Statutes. Local governments receiving State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) funding are required to have an AHAC and complete a Local Housing Incentive Plan annually.

 

The AHAC has the responsibility to review the established policies and procedures, ordinances, land development regulations, and adopted comprehensive plan and recommends specific actions or initiatives to encourage or facilitate affordable housing. In addition, the AHAC identifies incentives that are pertinent to affordable housing and serves as an information resource to help improve affordable housing feasibility.

 

The AHAC is required to have a member of the Local Planning Agency (LPA) as a voting member; the Board of County Commissioners has previously chosen to nominate a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) to serve on behalf of the LPA. AHAC members are nominated for two-year terms.
