Proposed Connecticut Zoning Reform Intensifies Housing Debate

More than 90 percent of Connecticut’s zoned land is allocated for single-family housing. A new advocacy group, Desegregate CT, is pushing to change this through S.B. 1024, a bill that would legalize accessory dwelling units, set caps on parking minimums, and legalize multifamily housing between two and four units near transit and along main streets. The group believes the bill would promote racial equity and economic change. But opponents question whether it would advance equity and believe it doesn’t push for much-needed new housing.
