Affordable Housing Advisory Committee

The Board of County Commissioners recognizes that all persons should have access to safe, decent and affordable housing. In March 2017, the Board approved Resolution No. 2017-99 which established a Committee to review current affordable housing options and to identify opportunities for establishing future affordable housing options. The Resolution includes Committee member names and the criteria they represent in accordance with Florida Statute, Section 420.9076.

The Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 4 p.m. in the Commission Chambers located at 96135 Nassau Place, Yulee, FL 32097 (James S Page Governmental Complex). Meetings are open to the public.
