The Joint Professional Societies Annual Legislative breakfast is an event where people can meet up with their senators to share opinion and learn more about the plan of the upcoming legislative session. This year RADISE and Smart Structures, along with others, sponsored the event at Palm Beach Gardens Marriott Hotel.
The session started with Susan Coughanour, FAICP, Vice-Chair of the Treasure Coast Section of APA-FL, as the moderator. The members could get a close perspective of the region’s Legislative representatives’ opinion about their roles in planning and growth management for the upcoming 2019 Legislative Session.
The program witnessed legislators like Bobby Powell, Lori Berman, and Toby Overdorf respond to questions raised by RADISE and the audience on 2019 Budget, Florida’s growth management, proposed home rule preemptions, new water planning funding, property rights and the state’s economy.
