Daytona Beach considers proposal to add affordable housing units

The city of Daytona Beach is looking to add more affordable housing while improving one of its poorest neighborhoods.

The city will soon consider a proposal to build more than 60 apartment units in the Midtown neighborhood, with about a third of those designated for low- and moderate-income individuals.


The units would be built in the city’s old public works lot off Orange Avenue, near South Ridgewood Avenue.

According to the proposal, the city would give the developer a 70% discount on its property taxes for building the affordable units.
