The Tower Forum is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1976.  The organization consists of business executives from industries and professions in south Florida. The Tower Forum has become the “go-to” discussion venue in Broward, where these leaders identify critical issues facing our community, engage in public dialogue, and encourage positive change.

Housing, Traffic, & Infrastructure

(as described in song):

“There’s always something happening but nothing going on;

there’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot.”


While Broward County affordable housing, infrastructure, traffic, and development initiatives have indeed captured some headlines, it remains that:

  • South Florida continues to be the most cost burdened metro region in the nation, with over half of Broward residents spending more than 30% of their monthly income on housing expenses.
  • Broward County and its municipalities face rapidly mounting infrastructure challenges.
  • Its citizens continue to daily experience transportation frustrations.
  • Steadily expanding population projections portend additional strains on our systems.

Our panel examines the challenges and discusses studies and proposals now on the table. Why is the process so slow? What obstacles need to be overcome?
