Researching Zoning Updates: Insights from Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD
Zoning helps decide development. Where people live, work, and play in cities are all guided by behind-the-scenes codes and regulations. Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD both revamped their zoning paradigms in processes culminating in 2016. As seen through the lens of housing permits, this process may have a stronger impact in Washington, DC than in Baltimore, MD because of the former city’s blistering growth in the early 21st century. The empirical work in this thesis underscores the need for strong municipal data, and suggests further supports – such as inclusionary zoning and community benefits agreements – are needed to ensure equitable development. Still, these zoning revamps at the very least updated decades-old regulations to help guide future growth in each city.
