AARP, in partnership with CNU, has published the new report on zoning reform to create more walkable communities – Enabling Better Places: A Handbook for Improved Neighborhoods.

The report promotes incremental changes to zoning and land-use ordinances to build or retrofit neighborhoods and urban centers. The recommendations—unlike form-based codes (FBCs) and other complete zoning overhauls—can be implemented one at a time.

This document is a great resource to help practitioners reach citizens, local political leaders, and other groups who are new to the importance of reforming land use regulations in order to enable more walkable, vibrant, equitable communities.

Danielle Arigoni (director of the AARP Livable Communities initiative), Fred Buzo (Associate State Director of AARP CA), Kelly Stoddard-Poor (Director of Outreach of AARP VT), and Mallory Baches (Director of Strategic Development at CNU) will discuss key takeaways from the report and explore the relationship between land use regulatory reform and age-friendly communities.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
