Starting with a discussion of the ethical obligations of planners and aspirational principles of the
AICP Code of Ethics, this workshop will discuss three of the most essential tools used to ensure
that all people have access to housing of basic standards: Fair Housing, Building Codes and
Inclusionary Zoning. It is essential that municipalities learn what they must do to comply with
the Fair Housing Act, particularly in regard to planning, zoning administration, and legislation
affecting housing types, housing design and the various classes of individuals protected by
the Fair Housing Act. The session will offer real-life examples of fair housing violations and will
teach planners how they can work in their respective jurisdictions to provide housing types that
are available and accessible to everyone.
