The “Live Local Act” (Senate Bill 102, Codified in Chapter 2023-17, Laws of Florida), which was approved by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by the Florida Governor in the 2023 Florida Legislative Session requires all municipalities to prepare an inventory list of property that the municipality owns that is appropriate for use as affordable housing. Based on the information from the Orange County Property Appraiser records, the Town of Oakland owns 69 properties. After review of these properties by Town staff, it was determined that all Town owned property is either currently used for Town public purposes, facilities, and infrastructure, planned to be used for future Town public purposes, facilities and infrastructure, or there are physical or environmental constraints that restrict development. At the November 14th Town Commission regular meeting, the Town Commission approved Resolution 2023-12 determining that there are no Town properties that are appropriate for affordable housing under Section 166.0451, Florida Statues.
