Affordable Housing Land Use

This course will explain the history and impact of land use and environmental regulation. Land use controls are an evolution of restrictions on size, density, and use of real property. Students will gain an understanding of planning policy and rezoning tools. They will also learn how the funding for affordable housing is determined and allocated both locally and nationally. Governments’ influence on property markets has an ongoing impact on private property rights and values. Private property can be repurposed for new uses, and it can also be taken for public use or public purpose. This course will explore all the aforementioned concepts, policies, and practices.
