Increasing Housing Options through Simple Zoning Changes
Date Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 2:00-3:30 pm
Location Zoom Webinar
Deadline September 29, 2021
Is there a shortage of housing in your community? Are you a member of a Plan Commission, Village Board, Common Council, or neighborhood housing association and want to know how your jurisdiction can proactively support housing development using the existing zoning ordinance?
In this webinar, you will learn some simple zoning code changes to reduce regulatory obstacles and increase the variety of housing choices in your community. We will explore how to add standards for accessory dwelling units (commonly called "mother-in-law units" or "granny flats"), how to incorporate multi-unit housing into existing residential zoning districts, and how to alter bulk and dimensional standards to achieve the types of development you want. This program features Rebecca Roberts, Land Use Specialist with the Center for Land Use Education and Melinda Osterberg, Community Development Educator with the UW-Madison, Division of Extension.
There is no easy solution to this complex issue, however, this webinar will provide your jurisdiction with simple steps that you can take immediately to increase housing options!
