Have your voice be heard by taking a brief survey! Be a part of the creative solutions to address #housing #affordability gaps in #SarasotaCounty.

Sarasota County Government has launched a major initiative focused on identifying gaps in the housing mix between supply and demand, and developing and implementing solutions. The initiative seeks to evaluate existing impediments, make use of opportunities, and supplement ongoing policies to increase the supply of housing within the county that is affordable to those residents with moderate to lower incomes (i.e. workforce housing). #AgeFriendly #Sarasota #BePartOfTheSolution #CommunityEngagement
