About the Event
WB 1008 Neighborhood Planning Series | Atlanta City Design: Housing
This course traces the history of land-use and zoning policy in Atlanta and how they are related to contemporary racial inequalities in the City. Bringing together historical maps, current GIS and Census data, and a review of key City policy, this course will demonstrate how decisions about zoning shape current issues the City is facing including housing affordability and racial segregation. Students of the course will gain insight into the landscape of zoning and housing policy in Atlanta, past and present, and the outcomes of these policies. Additionally, the course will provide students with important data points and familiarity with interactive maps to share findings with other stakeholders. The course culminates in several policy recommendations to remedy past and current inequalities in housing in Atlanta and suggests how the recommended policies will support equitable growth in the City.
