The American Planning Association (APA) is pleased to share the latest draft of APA’s Equity in Zoning Policy Guide. This guide is game-changing and aims to identify specific ways in which policy makers – together with planners – can dismantle barriers that perpetuate the separation of historically disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in key areas, including:
Zoning regulation enforcement
It also offers specific guidance that state and federal policy makers can use to shape zoning reform policy.
APA will use all member comments received during this period to inform final adjustments to the draft guide before it goes to our member-appointed body for further amendment, debate, and approval. This phase is the final piece of an extensive outreach process.
Thank you for lending your voice and unique perspective to this critical phase in APA’s policy development process!
