This Article focuses on the prevalent problem of increasing concentrations of poverty in the inner city and social isolation of inner-city residents in major American cities caused by the mass exodus of middle class, working residents to the suburbs. The Article advocates the implementation of fair share housing programs to remedy these problems of socioeconomic isolation. Specifically, the Article argues that Florida has an optimal statutory scheme to easily introduce such a program. The Article gives a description of fair share programs, including federal efforts toward fair share housing and the state programs of California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Oregon. Finally, the Article closes with five alternatives for a fair share program suited specifically for Florida, utilizing the elements of other federal and state approaches to fair share housing.
