Upcoming Programs

Professors' Corner: Restrictive Zoning and the Nimby Movement

Tuesday, November 12, 2019
12:30-1:30 pm ET
(11:30 am CT, 10:30 am MT, 9:30 am PT)

Faculty: John Infranca, Associate Professor of Law, Suffolk University Law School and Michael Lewyn, Professor of Law and Director of the Institute on Land Use and Sustainable Development and Associate Professor of Law, Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center

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.

Rural Blight

Tuesday, December 10, 2019
12:30-1:30 pm ET
(11:30 am CT, 10:30 am MT, 9:30 am PT)

Faculty: Ann Eisenberg, Assistant Professor of Law, University of South Carolina School of Law and Jesse Richardson, Professor of Law and Lead Land Use Attorney, West Virginia University College of Law
Vacant, abandoned, and dilapidated buildings plague rural communities. Yet, few resources are available to practitioners, academics, and policymakers who wish to understand and address the unique legal issues often characterizing rural blight. This discussion will cover the factors that may make blight remediation different in rural areas, how rural practitioners and local governments can approach the issue despite limited resources, and the policy reforms that show potential to facilitate tackling blight in rural communities.
