Housing Affordability Institute released a new whitepaper outlining how modest densification can be used for housing a growing population in a more environmentally sustainable way.
The whitepaper is part of Housing Affordability Institute’s new Modest Densification series highlighting how zoning modernization through modest densification can increase housing inventory, affordability, and access.
- Modest densification is a more efficient use of land than status quo zoning.
- In greenfield development spaces, new housing platted via modest densification is a more efficient use of land than status quo zoning would from the moment the community grows.
- The positive impact on the environment may be even more pronounced with redevelopment opportunities.
