Outlook 2022 will offer an eye-opening look at one of the most pressing issues facing our region. We’ve assembled a prominent panel of experts who will discuss how the local housing market crisis affects us all and offer critical thinking on how to alleviate some of the burden.
We introduced our Winter Park Prosperity Scorecard last fall at Outlook 2021, and this year we’re exploring one of the metrics creating the biggest impact for Winter Park employers, first-time homebuyers, renters, builders, realtors, residents and commuters. A shortage of attainable housing leads to barriers for businesses to hire enough employees, suppresses entrepreneurship and economic prosperity, limits the number of young families and residents throughout our neighborhoods, increases emissions as more people are forced to commute longer distances, and creates other challenges. Joining us will be Mark Brewer of the Central Florida Foundation, Lee Steinhauer of the Greater Orlando Builders Association and the Apartment Association of Greater Orlando, and Austin Vale of Orlando YIMBY.
