In an effort to increase housing that is affordable, attainable and appropriate in Palm Beach County, an inaugural Housing Summit was held in May. More than 500 stakeholders attended the summit and tremendous momentum was created to address the housing crisis in our community. To build on that momentum, the Steering Committee developed guiding principles and actions based on the presentations, discussions and ideas heard at the summit. A regional framework consisting of four Regional Subcommittees was established to continue the ongoing effort on a countywide basis.
The goal of the regional subcommittees is to develop tailored regional housing plans through an inclusive, collaborative approach that ensures broad participation and is responsive to the local conditions. Each regional subcommittee determines its specific meeting schedule and location. Listed below are the following scheduled meetings. This is a communitywide effort; not led by Palm Beach County staff.
Membership on Regional Subcommittees have been filled. The public is invited to attend the regional meetings on the following dates:
