Professors' Corner: Restrictive Zoning and the Nimby Movement

Throughout much of the United States a lack of sufficient housing has contributed to rising costs for renters and prospective homeowners. While YIMBYs and others advocate for reducing regulatory restrictions, opponents contend that increasing supply will not reduce housing costs or that it will radically alter existing neighborhood character. This program will evaluate these claims. It will also discuss, and assess, local and state measures to up zone and permit denser development.
