On Nov. 14 at Pierogi Gallery, a panel moderated by Phil DePaolo introduced the recently published book, “Zoned Out.”
The panel discussed the current state of zoning as a tool to promote development. They discussed the practices of zoning and housing policy, which has facilitated the displacement of low-income residents. These experts all discussed several examples of how recent upzoning in Williamsburg and Greenpoint had forced the mass eviction of low- and moderate-income people.
The book, “Zoned Out,” documents the land-use zoning tool and how community-based planning and housing in the public domain sustains and grows community without forcing mass eviction.
