Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Housing America in the Twenty-First Century


The proposed Town of Wellington project in Palm Beach County, Florida, was planned based on the needs related to the jobs-housing relationship identified in the area. The conditions placed on the project's development approval to ensure achievement of the jobs-housing relationship can be interpreted as social engineering. This paper explores the implications of placing both supply and demand side constraints on affordable housing as the means to implement the jobs-housing relationship.
