Mixing It up with Nonconforming Uses
CM | 1.25
Date: Saturday, April 13
Activity Code: S403
Room: Regency C
Emerging planning theories postulate that mixed-use and visual diversity will help bring people back to cities, reduce energy usage, and provide aesthetic variety. Can nonconforming uses beneficially contribute to the diversity of neighborhoods? And should zoning ordinances be revised to encourage maintenance and reconstruction of nonconformities? This session will examine the treatment of nonconforming uses in traditional zoning ordinances and explore why nonconforming structures can be positive contributors to the local environment.
