APFO is one of key issues for us. It has a strong connection to school redistricting. One expertt Brent Loveless will host an APFO 101 seminar. Please attend it.
Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance – covers all public facilities including schools, roads, water, sewer, library, police/fire departments.
It has been 14 years since APFO was last reviewed. At that time, school capacity was reduced from 120% down to the current 115%.
With an amendment, this capacity could be brought down to 110% or lower.
