Confronting Racism in City Planning and Zoning
This presentation by Joel Dock of Louisville Metro Planning and Design is part of the Geographic & Environmental Sciences Seminar Series.
It is crucial in planning for an equitable future that all citizens have access to fair and affordable housing. To do so, we must confront the past in order to move our land use practices forward for all.
The themes presented throughout the interactive exhibit, “Confronting Racism in City Planning and Zoning,” focus on the discriminatory land use practices and ideas that have shaped Louisville, KY for over a century.
The exhibit begins with a basic introduction to zoning and land use regulations, and then dives deeper into the specific policies, people, and methods that have shaped patterns of housing segregation in Louisville Metro.
The exhibit serves as a historical framework to ongoing efforts to reform the Land Development Code.
