The Possibilities and Challenges of Promoting Transit-Oriented Communities in Connecticut

Presented by Pete Harrison and Desegregate Connecticut

In this workshop, DesegregateCT Director Pete Harrison will review the opportunities and challenges of promoting the organization’s key priority of Transit-Oriented Communities in Connecticut. Participants will review land use research pulled from our first-of-its kind Zoning Atlas, discuss winning and losing zoning reform strategies at the local and state level, and explore a brief case study of a TOC Walk Audit conducted by DesegregateCT in a small city in Connecticut.

DesegregateCT is a pro-homes coalition of over 80 nonprofit and neighborhood groups in Connecticut advocating for local and state-wide zoning reforms to create a more equitable, prosperous, and sustainable state. As a program of the Regional Plan Association, DesegregateCT focuses on education, research, and advocacy to provide data-driven solutions to the state’s growing housing crisis.

Seating for this workshop is limited to 50 participants, so register today to reserve your place!
