Comprehensive zoning reform is a critical legal tool for urban revitalization of post-industrial cities and towns. This presentation will provide context for why rezonings may be desirable, which communities have adopted them, and associated procedural and substantive issues. Using Hartford as an example, Professor Bronin will discuss how the city navigated the comprehensive rezoning to advance four central goals--economic growth, environmental sustainability, access and mobility, and food security--and lessons learned during the process.
Professors' Corner is a monthly teleconference featuring law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate practitioners and scholars.
