Free the Housing Market From Zoning

“The housing market is mired with zoning regulations, from the seemingly innocuous and logical to rules that have been clearly made obsolete by modern standards and modes of living. For example, in cities across the United States, apartment buildings are required to have a certain number of parking spaces per unit, most typically one space per unit, though two spaces per unit requirements are not uncommon for certain dwellings. … Parking spaces for tenants who don’t plan to get their driving license (as is trending upwards as well) let alone own their own vehicle serve no purpose other than to take up space that could increase density on the lot.” (09/08/21)
