    Session Capacity: N/A

    For the last 100 years zoning has been a key tool for protecting and enhancing community character, but has also entrenched racial segregation, outlawed traditional building forms, eroded the environment, and worsened the dire housing shortage in the most vibrant urban areas.
    This panel will examine efforts around the United States to push back against the prevailing land use system. What will it take to reform barriers to housing supply? Can we trust local governments to take a stand against NIMBY-ism, or should state officials and judges intervene to police the boundaries of local land use authority? Looking beyond the zoning code, this session will also ask how innovations in infrastructure policy and design can reinvigorate urban life. Additionally, panelists will consider how sensitive zoning reform efforts should be to community concerns about gentrification, neighborhood character, parking, and traffic.
