In Wisconsin and in communities across the country, too many families are enduring a housing affordability crisis. Wisconsin cities and villages need a wider range of housing types to meet a changing population.
To address these issues, The League of Wisconsin Municipalities partnered with the Congress for New Urbanism to provide Wisconsin municipalities with simple changes to their zoning regulations that will enable more attainable affordable housing at a range of incomes, in walkable, inclusive neighborhoods.
CNU’s Project for Code Reform provides an approach that can enable a great place, even where resources for revising zoning regulations are limited, as they are in many cities and villages in Wisconsin. The approach focuses on the essential land use elements needed for vibrant, livable neighborhoods, and helps local governments identify and implement the "biggest little" code changes needed to achieve the greatest impact on housing and affordability. Incremental code reform enables communities to try new approaches and grow into them, advancing to additional changes in an organic way and at a pace that suits each particular place.
