Single-use zoning is the most widespread form of zoning found across the United States. While it might prevent a tannery from opening next door to your home, the odds are good that it also prevents a duplex from doing the same thing. The simple fact is that zoning, at least in its most recognizable form, is an antiquated tool that does more harm than good. Poorly-designed zoning and other land-use regulations increase home prices, reduces housing availability, promote segregation, lengthens commutes, and restricts transportation choices. With the movement to eliminate single-family-exclusive zoning gaining steam, around the country, the opportunity is ripe to reimagine zoning entirely. Come participate in a conversation about the need for widespread zoning reform, what could replace zoning as we know it and how it could advance real change in our neighborhoods.
