Our friends at the APA Planning and Law Division will host a webinar on Deregulatory Trends in Land Use later this month. We encourage our readers to register! A description of the webinar and registration link follows:
Rising housing costs and environmental concerns have led to efforts to “upzone” communities by deregulating limits on higher-density residential uses, providing density incentives for developments that include affordable housing, or eliminating single-family zoning altogether. Are these deregulatory trends a sign of a fundamental shift in land-use philosophies?
This webinar will discuss recent and proposed legislation in Minnesota and California that illustrate these trends, as well as the potential legal issues that come with such legislation.
