Zoning Reform - What's Next?

Stay up-to-date on the latest zoning reform hot topics.

For almost a century it has been well established that municipalities are generally empowered to establish zoning ordinances that segregate use of privately owned real estate that are deemed to be incompatible in accordance with requirements or limitations determined by the states within which they are located. However, the challenges faced by municipalities over the last century as a result of development, demographic shifts and environmental conditions have become increasingly complex, and in response the breadth of issues zoning ordinances seek to address have increased. This important topic helps those involved in development, whether in the public or private sector, understand the basis of zoning, it's traditional purpose and how it is undergoing dynamic reform to address a number of critical issues facing our urban centers and other communities, including adaptation to climate change and addressing increasing lack of affordable housing opportunities. The topic also discusses recent legal challenges and ruling surrounding, or potentially affecting, zoning for affordable housing, and issues to be aware of that could have an impact on the success of affordable housing programs implemented through zoning ordinances.
