It's still the best conference I go to all year...RMLUI turns 30.
From Susan Daggett:
As Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute celebrates its 30th year, the Institute will present its first ever virtual Western Places, Western Spaces land use conference -- this year scheduled to begin on March 4 and continue every Friday for the month of March. This year’s program will focus on bouncing forward from the COVID era to build thriving, healthy, and equitable communities and will feature sessions on housing, transportation, and the public realm….but with a focus on what we’ve learned from the pandemic and where we go from here. The final week of the conference will include (on Thursday, March 25th) a practice-focused Workshop on Housing Affordability and Zoning, which will consider the causes and effects of the current housing affordability crisis in Colorado (and elsewhere), will examine the role of zoning in limiting the development of affordable forms of housing, and will consider legal and policy reforms that can help remove barriers and increase the availability of workforce and “missing middle” housing. This workshop is being made available at no cost, thanks to underwriting by Gary Community Investments.
