Planning Challenges 2016: "Density, Housing & Jobs: The Dynamics of Density in the New Millennium"

Density, Housing & Jobs: The Dynamics of Density in the New Millennium

By 2040, Florida’s population is expected to reach 26 million.  This half day seminar will focus on: What challenges does this growth pose for land use policy makers?  How will this population growth impact housing demand and supply?  Where will the job market be in the next thirty years?  These and other important questions will be examined with a focus on the impact of density, housing and jobs from different perspectives:  regional policies, local government initiatives, and private sector participation.

A series of forward thinking presentations will review how density is changing the face of our communities and how we develop. Confirmed speakers include:
