Requiring Land Use Agencies to Justify Denials

Filed in Land Development, Legal by on October 4, 2017 0 Comments

A prominent barrier to the development of affordable housing is unreasonable community opposition. As a response, some states have enacted unique processes to handle land use denials.

This presentation, taking place Tuesday, Oct. 10 from 1-2 p.m. ET, provides a look into housing appeals statutes in Massachusetts and Connecticut, as well as a discussion of NAHB’s new paper on the issue: NAHB’s State Survey of Housing Appeals Statutes.

If there are discussions in your state on how to combat unreasonable community opposition — or if you think there should be — this 60-minute webinar is a must-see.
