Florida's economic turn-around
depends on the ability to grow in a
responsible and predictable manner,
and the Builders & Developers Council
looks forward to providing a
business perspective to the debate.
This council will align the shared interests of Florida’s top residential and commercial building and development companies and estab- lish a major governmental affairs presence to achieve its goals. Will work to enhance Florida’s economy to insure that proposed state laws and rules don’t impede or negate our current growth opportunities.
In the areas of growth management and infrastructure, the Builders and Developers Council will:
- Support funding for infrastructure that promotes job growth and development in Florida;
- Support legislation that streamlines the permitting and licensing process which may unnecessarily hinder job creation;
- Support a “glitch bill” to correct unintended flaws in last year’s landmark growth legislation; and
- Support an objective review of special taxing districts.
AIF and the Builders and Developers Council will focus on efforts to streamline and improve Florida’s growth management laws as well as the regulatory agencies involved in order to foster smart and responsible development across the state of Florida. Support for funding of transportation and port infrastructure projects will also be a top priority for the Council.
