Why Your Community Needs Planning-Led Zoning Reform
Elected leaders are turning to community planners for their insights and data-backed policy ideas to overcome restrictive zoning that prevents housing development in the places where people most need choice.
From parking minimums to building more housing near transit, planners — together with decision makers — are finding innovative, locally led ways to make housing more affordable, accessible, and available to residents.
