While there are many facets of a resilient community, the impact of land use codes on the ability to achieve the most advanced LEED buildings is significant. “A Model Zoning Code for Resilient Communities” seeks to enable smart policy and incentivize a positive future. Panelists will explore the various aspects of how land use codes impact resiliency through barriers and incentives, and the positive impact codes promoting resiliency can have on health and productivity.

Mithun partner Bert Gregory will provide an overview of zoning codes and their typologies, and explore the link between codes and resiliency. Bert will be joined by Vivian Loftness, Paul Mellon Chair in Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University and Alisdair McGregor, Arup Fellow and Principal at Arup.
