This approach recognizes that cities and their zoning districts can and should change in appropriate ways. Learn three distinct dynamic zoning approaches in this issue of Zoning Practice. See how applying dynamic zoning can provide a framework for predictable change, implement scenario planning more directly, and keep data-driven decision-making at the core of planning. Explore more agile planning methods at NPC22.
