ZONING, EQUITY, AND
Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy Symposium
Bringing together experts from Chicago and around the country in city government, housing organizations, design, and academia, “Beyond the Single-Family Home: Zoning, Equity, and Access,” will center around common exclusionary zoning practices in U.S. cities, like zoning for single-family homes over denser housing such as apartments, townhomes, and duplexes.
This one-day symposium hosted by the Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy at the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation will explore how a form of development so often identified with the “American Dream,” has contributed to some of the biggest challenges facing U.S. cities today, including unaffordable housing, lack of access to quality transit, and racial segregation. The event will be held on Monday, May 16, 2022, at the David Rubenstein Forum, 1201 E 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637.
