A History of Zoning and Segregation in Virginia: Lessons for Today A webinar on April 29, 2021 from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m.
The issues Northern Virginia faces today regarding affordability and inequitable access to housing are not just a result of market forces of supply and demand. Our history of zoning and development shaped the way housing and neighborhoods in our cities and suburbs look and function today.
Join the Business for a Better World Center and the Center for Real Estate Entrepreneurship of the George Mason School of Business to discuss the historic roots of housing inequities and the opportunities for change, based on the recent ?Zoning and Segregation in Virginia? report from a leading law firm in our area, McGuire Woods.
