Rethinking zoning

Tuesday, January 3, 2023

Here’s an interview of author Nolan Gray about rethinking zoning. A couple of quick takeaways:

  • “Cancel zoning” is an overstatement; Gray argues for looser zoning, primarily around residential density
  • Houston provides an example showing that you can still make a hash out of land use even without zoning
