GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The City of Gainesville State Housing Initiatives Partnership Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (SHIP-AHAC), an advisory board that recommends monetary and non-monetary local housing incentive strategies to be included in the local housing assistance plan, voted unanimously in their July 12 meeting to send a strongly-worded letter to the City Commission, asking them to vote against the “proposed elimination of exclusionary zoning.”
The letter says that the SHIP-AHAC “was not involved in the development of” and “does not endorse” the findings or recommendations of the Exclusionary Zoning & Inclusionary Zoning Study that was presented to the City Commission on January 6 by HR&A Advisors, a consultant hired by the City. SHIP-AHAC further “formally requests to be involved in any future studies related to affordable housing.”
