OCFL Update | Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County 2019 Builders Blitz
Four builders participated in Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County’s 2019 Builders Blitz where participants donated building materials, labor and expertise to construct four new homes in just five days. The ambitious project is a continuation of the ongoing development at the Apopka neighborhood Arbor Bend. Mayor Demings stressed events such as these highlight the importance of public-private partnerships and he said to expect more partnerships on the horizon for Orange County. The County has given $1.6 million in total funding to help with the land acquisition and development of Arbor Bend, which will construct a total of 56 single-family homes in this area that are vital to support affordable housing initiatives. The Orange County Division of Building Safety also expedited all permitting and were onsite to move the process along.
