Hartford's Experiment: Sustainable Zoning in a Post-Industrial City


Sara C. Bronin, Thomas F. Gallivan Chair in Real Property Law and Faculty Director, Center for Energy and Environmental Law, University of Connecticut School of Law


Professor R. Wilson Freyermuth, University of Missouri Law School
Comprehensive zoning reform is a critical legal tool for urban revitalization of post-industrial cities and towns. Professor Bronin’s presentation will provide context for why re-zonings may be desirable, which communities have adopted them, and associated procedural and substantive issues. 
Using Hartford as an example, Professor Bronin will discuss how the city navigated its comprehensive re-zoning to advance four central goals—economic growth, environmental sustainability, access and mobility, and food security—and the lessons learned during the process.
