Poster: Zoning Affordable Housing and Mixed-Income Neighborhoods
You'll learn about:
- Why zoning for affordable housing and mixed-income areas is important
- What factors affect affordable housing supply
- How the federal government can incentivize mixed-income housing
What are the implications of zoning and affordable housing? Does zoning impact affordable housing? How does zoning address community redevelopment? This poster seeks to understand how households on social service located in a mixed-income neighborhood benefit from having access to amenities supported by homeownership of the higher-income-group households. It presents the results of a quantitative study of five variables—income, race, health, crime, and location—and how residents fared with regard to each before and after the implementation of mixed-income neighborhoods in Baltimore, Maryland.
