More Course Details

The presentation will provide findings from a study of exclusionary and inclusionary housing provisions found within land use ordinances from over 3000 U.S. jurisdictions (covering ~55% of the U.S. population).

Learn about a first-ever study — in terms of breadth and scope — to assess the prevalence of affordable and exclusionary housing provisions in land use ordinances. Its findings can inform local decisions on the key role that land use regulations play in housing affordability.
