Policies & Values

Values

  • Orlando is for everyone

  • All residents should have access to housing that they can afford

  • People deserve robust, sustainable transportation options that are compatible with dense housing

Policy Priorities

LEGALIZE HOUSING

Orlando needs housing of all types to meet demand

  • Allow for the construction of multi-unit housing throughout our urban core – near downtown Orlando and surrounding neighborhoods, SunRail stations, colleges and universities, and other employment clusters

STOP THE SPRAWL

We must prioritize building up and in, instead of out

  • Local governments should prioritize infill development and housing density to protect Central Florida's conservation areas and natural resources

BUILD MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Ensure sufficient affordable housing to serve residents at all income levels

  • Mandate that a certain percentage of new residential development be affordable for low-income residents

  • Fully fund affordable housing trusts at the state and local level

REFORM REGULATIONS

Bureaucracy and red tape keep supply low

  • Reduce fees and reviews that slow down the process, increase the cost of construction, and allow for loud voices in the room to have an outsized effect on public policy

FIX BROKEN INCENTIVES

Ill-considered policies make the problem worse

  • Remove parking minimums to control housing costs and incentivize sustainable transportation

  • Invest in transit that is compatible with housing density, such as rail, buses, cycling, and pedestrian infrastructure
