Legal Fellow John Infranca Guest Writer for Land Use Blog

Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy   (New York)

July 2012

Legal Research Fellow John Infranca has been selected to write for the Land Use Prof Blog. When he isn’t at the Furman Center, trying to untangle the regulations getting in the way of micro-units, or getting to the bottom of how transferable development rights are used, Infranca has been blogging about the proposed East Midtown rezoning and use of transferable development rights (TDRs), as well as, the ongoing dispute over the Westchester housing settlement, which requires the county to develop affordable housing units and to affirmatively market such units in surrounding areas with significant non-white populations. During his time as a guest blogger, Infranca also commented on the role of the street in land use planning with a particular focus on New York City’s street grid. A network of land use professors author the blog, which covers national news, issues and commentary related to land use.
