Webinar

Tim Hollister will be a speaker during the Connecticut Bar Association's webinar, "Motley Speaker Series: Equity Through Zoning Reform in Connecticut."

This program will feature land use attorneys, including two law professors, discussing how the structure of land use decision-making in Connecticut can impede policies and decisions that promote racial and economic equity, with a focus on several types of exclusionary zoning regulations; and current efforts to revise state zoning laws to promote desegregation.

You Will Learn

  • How the exercise of land use regulatory authority and decision-making primarily at the municipal level can create a parochial focus that results in dysfunction and inequity
  • Particular types of land use policies and regulations that have inequitable impacts, with examples of solutions from other states
  • Current reform proposals circulating for consideration in the next legislative session
