Letters: Principles for Equitable Zoning Reform

AFR joined over 100 groups in sending a letter urging the Biden administration to ensure that any zoning reform incentives or requirements actually do the job of opening up exclusionary areas to more economic and racial diversity; do not further the displacement of low-income communities and communities of color, do not result in the loss of affordable housing, and do not further entrench profit-driven commodification of housing. Federal action to eliminate exclusionary zoning has the potential to expand racial and economic justice, but, if not crafted carefully, the effort could be ineffective or even harmful to communities of color.
