The Tallahassee City Commission holds its annual retreat

Commissioners will review accomplishments of the past year and anticipate strategic plans for the coming one

The Tallahassee City Commission will hold its annual retreat Wednesday, setting out goals for affordable housing, saving money on energy costs and attracting new jobs.

The city says it has moved to save utility customers $212 million through the end of Fiscal Year 2024…and that average residential electric bills in Tallahassee are projected to be $106, 31 percent below the projected state average.

Amazon and Burrell Aviation are expected to bring in thousands of jobs. But as the Tallahassee Democrat reported, it’s unclear when Amazon will be hiring.

And on affordable housing, the city has nearly 2,400 housing units either completed, under construction, in permitting, or in the planning stage. But some question: affordable for who?

The retreat will be held at Parkview Ballroom at Cascades, 414 East Bloxham Street, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
