Abstract

This paper seeks to forge a richer understanding of the costs and benefits of zoning. To accomplish its goal, this piece undertakes a small-scale, block-by-block examination of New Haven, Connecticut before the advent of modern zoning systems. This Note quantitatively demonstrates the serious tradeoffs between government regulation and strong private property rights, and concludes that previous studies of New Haven have oversimplified the knotty problems posed by land use regulation.

Keywords: zoning, land-use, property
