Talking Back to Market Urbanism: What does Equity-Driven Zoning and Planning Look Like?
Our panelists will help us to understand the potential for reinventing planning policy, from comprehensive planning that builds on community priorities, to alternatives to market fundamentalism to create housing, to tools that would lay bare the racial biases of our planning and development decisions.
Come and hear from local experts and seasoned practitioners about the Regional Plan Association's goal to help leverage anchor institutions to strengthen the region's communities.
