The Summer issue takes stock of some of the biggest trends in tech and policy. Advancements in LED lighting are powering a boom in more efficient, localized urban agriculture, while communities across the country are dropping parking minimums to catalyze development. And as cryptocurrencies fluctuate and social media platforms embrace NFTs, Planning asks: How might the blockchain — and its environmental concerns — impact our communities? Plus: Universal basic mobility catches on, Boston's developers foot the bill for climate infrastructure, and state supreme court cases offer convincing arguments for zoning reform.
