What Is Zoning? launch and community workshops

_What Is Zoning?_ launch and community workshops

On November 20th, 2013, CUP launched What Is Zoning? the second in our series of Envisioning Development Toolkits, with a party and four days of hands-on community workshops.

Zoning law regulates land use across the city and shapes buildings, blocks, and whole neighborhoods. It can be a tool for preservation or for rapid physical and economic development. But how does it work?

This workshop explains density, bulk, land use, and how proposed rezonings could affect your neighborhood. It helps commmunities learn the basics, like how FAR works, and build up to topics like inclusionary and contextual zoning, with brightly colored plastic blocks and interactive activities.

Want to learn more about the toolkit? Get training to run workshops? Buy or borrow a toolkit to run your own workshops?
