In front of over 100 people on May 25, City of Orlando Housing Coordinator Frances DeJesus-Davila agreed to support an initiative by Orlando FOCUS to build affordable homes for low-to- moderate income families in the Parramore section of the city. As a first step, the City will work with FOCUS and Mt. Zion Baptist Church to make available three city properties for construction, identify other properties, and provide up to $65,000 in City assistance to acquire properties.
