Millennial Pivot: Sustainability-Purposed Performance Zoning Guidelines in Urban Commercial Development

Michael N. Widener
2015 Social Science Research Network  
Buildings Day's themes included the proposition that improving building operating efficiency is instrumental in reducing global energy demand and emissions. 2 This Article asserts that the optimal means  ...  to accomplish this "decarbonization" of the built environment at the local government level is to adopt a performance zoning platform-a type of American land use regulation with origins in the mid-20  ...  In 1974, Stockham dismissed this contention based on his belief that zoning maps had little predictive power. See id. 91.  ...
