Land Use: Solutions for a Better Tomorrow

In this special, expanded forum on land use topics, we have some exciting information to cover. This forum will be structured with a main keynote presentation and then three shorter, condensed presentations to follow.

For the main keynote presentation, Don Elliott will discuss the key role of zoning and land use regulations in meeting affordable housing demands. Key tools to be discussed include development density and incentives, parking,  open space, and design requirements, inclusionary zoning, occupancy restrictions, and Tiny Houses. In addition Mr. Elliott will discuss the need to tailor land use tools to specific housing needs and the increasing use of housing as workspace.  

The condensed, shorter presentations will cover the following topics:
A) Recap of the Initiative 66 response campaign to the ballot proposal of a 1% residential growth restriction cap 
B) Creating standardized blueprints for accessory dwelling units (ADUs)
C) Best practices on starting conversations with city officials and discussions around local NIMBY’ism
D) Re-imagining Brownfields so that cities can create vibrant places for people to live, work, and shop
