The City of Delray Beach in partnership with the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, Treasure Coast Section of the Florida American Planning Association, Florida Atlantic University School of Urban and Regional Planning, Palm Beach County Planning Congress, Inc., Abacoa Partnership For Community, and Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority has initiated a public education lecture series for planners, residents and visitors of the Region. The series is intended to focus on town planning, urban design, historic preservation, and the changing demographic and market trends that will affect and influence the long-term health and redevelopment of cities. This public education lecture series will showcase six distinguished speakers. The series is scheduled from December 2013 through May 2014. The fourth program in the series will feature Todd Zimmerman of Zimmerman, Volk and Associates, who will provide the audience an education on the historic and current housing market, and the demographic trends and buyer/renter preference changes that will transform the residential marketplace in the future. There will be a thorough analysis and profile presented of the two largest and most influential generations (Baby Boomers and Millennials) and how they will effect major changes in the population growth and redevelopment of cities and towns. Finally, recommendations will be presented for how cities and towns can best respond to, and be prepared for, the residential demand and market changes that lie ahead.
