Abstract

In 1991, at the behest of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) then Secretary Jack Kemp, the Advisory Commission on Regulatory Barriers to Affordable Housing delivered a report on how land-use restrictions have worsened housing affordability. Secretary Kemp charged the commission to “explore the effect of the maze of federal, state, and local laws, regulations, ordinances, codes, and innumerable other measures that act as barriers to the development of affordable housing in appropriate places … (and) to catalogue the barriers, identify the sources of those barriers, and propose solutions.”

Keywords: hud, cityscape, affordable housing, regulatory reform
