The DeLand Planning Board will hold a special meeting to consider changes to the city’s land-development regulations to better facilitate affordable housing March 9.
Originally an agenda item for two prior Planning Board meetings, the board unanimously decided to move discussion of the proposed land-development regulation changes to a special meeting to allow for more discussion and bring out more of the public.
Proposed changes to city code include easing restrictions on accessory dwelling units, eliminating a requirement that every single-family unit have two indoor parking spaces, and allowing more flexibility for developing single- and multifamily residences in Downtown DeLand.
The special meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, in the City Commission Chambers at DeLand City Hall, 120 S. Florida Ave.
Members of the public are encouraged to come out and share their opinions on affordable housing in DeLand. Meetings are also broadcast live, online, on the City of DeLand’s website, HERE.
