  • Streamline permitting/review processes for affordable housing;
  • Promote inclusionary zoning, density bonuses, affordable housing incentives;
  • Undertake and formalize regional planning and cooperation;

Papers selected for the conference will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Housing Policy Debate to be edited by Paul Jargowsky (Rutgers-Camden) and Prentiss Dantzler (University of Toronto).
