Zoning Out! – Part 1

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

For a long time, zonings main purpose was to separate incompatible land uses, but that course seems to be taking a turn. Zoning is becoming more comprehensive and more flexible. Rather than restricting, zoning is encouraging complete communities, innovative businesses, it is enabling people to start community gardens in under-used land and helping direct transit and community infrastructure to where people need it the most.

In this episode of Cities Alive we will hear stories from people that are using zoning in unlikely places to create vibrant neighbourhoods that enabling entrepreneurial spirit and how different zoning tools can give communities a bigger steak and municipalities more teeth to direct change.

In this episode we are looking at trends in zoning, so no zoning out!

This is an Ontario Professional Planners Institute episode.
