Kit What Is Zoning?

This interactive workshop toolkit includes a set of activities that break down density, bulk, land use, and how proposed rezonings could affect neighborhoods.

Inside the toolbox are infrastructure tiles, a two-sided gameboard, and hundreds of colorful plastic blocks that stack up to break down the basics of zoning. Lay out a brand new city, or max out your lot while you build up to topics like inclusionary and contextual zoning (and the dreaded Floor Area Ratio). A guidebook uses simple diagrams to explain how zoning works, and provides step-by-step instructions on how to lead your own workshops. The toolkit’s modules can be used to configure a workshop focused on your group’s specific organizing goals.

CUP developed the toolkit with designers Jeff Lai and Andrew Sloat, and an advisory board of local organizations.

You can also hire CUP to conduct a workshop for your group.

The Guidebook is available separately. And you can also get Activity Sheet refills, if you run out.

CUP is committed to helping housing advocates, community boards, and others teach their constituents about land use and development. This toolkit is available at the subsidized price of $100 for community-based groups. Contact mark(at)welcometocup.org for more information and to find out if you qualify.
