At a Policy Breakfast sponsored by the Furman Center, expert panelists discussed how local control over land use decisions affects the available housing stock, housing affordability, and neighborhood segregation. Panelists debated the benefits and drawbacks of local control, and the merits of moving land use decision-making towards the city level.
The discussion was built on a series of essays from a debate in the NYU Furman Center’s Dream Revisited series, which highlights contemporary policy debates about housing, segregation, and opportunity.
