Affordable Housing in New Urbanism
From a policy standpoint, there are four main approaches to affordable housing relevant to New Urbanists: Developing affordable housing using tax credits and grants; increasing affordable homeownership opportunities through programs like Habitat; encouraging resident-controlled limited-equity ownership via community land trusts; or leveraging market-rate development through inclusionary zoning. This panel compared and contrasted these strategies as relevant options for New Urbanism.
