County to explore ways to get more affordable housing

Palm Beach County commissioners will hold a workshop Tuesday to explore ways to increase the amount of affordable housing in the area.

The county has a program that requires builders to include affordable housing in their development plans, and the workshop session – scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Weisman Governmental Center at 301 N. Olive Avenue in West Palm Beach – will give commissioners an opportunity to determine its success.

Commissioner Paulette Burdick has raised objections when developers choose to pay a fee in lieu of including affordable housing in their plans.
