Zoning Practice helps guide you as you write and administer smart development codes.
In Defense of Local Zoning
This issue of Zoning Practice joins the current debate about zoning's future by arguing in defense of local zoning. It puts the current proposals into a broader historical context of proposed zoning reform over the decades, wondering whether current reformers (like past ones) may be expecting too much from proposed changes. It also raises the issue of whether the debate is really about zoning per se or is, instead, a thinly veiled critique of local control.
Zoning Practice analyzes trends and spotlights innovation in local land-use and development regulation. It is a valuable digital resource for:
- Planners and land-use attorneys responsible for drafting or administering zoning and other land-use and development regulations
- Emerging professionals interested in learning more about plan implementation
