Historically, zoning has been used to exclude development, uses, and people. This workshop will explore how we can reimagine zoning to encourage certain development patterns, create needed homes, and attract a range of residents. Zoning-based tools ranging from ADU’s to design standards and housing “by right” can be used to accomplish these goals; this workshop will also discuss the practicalities of implementing these strategies.
This course is open to Town board and committee members and Town staff who are directly involved in housing, including (but not limited to!):
Finance Committee, Community Preservation Committee, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, Select Board, Board of Health, Conservation Commissions, members of Affordable Housing Trusts, Housing Committee, all housing staff, planners and community development staff.
We also welcome resident housing advocates and future town leaders!
Attendance is free and pre-registration is necessary. This is a virtual workshop. We will send the Zoom link with the workshop reminder.
