Keep this assignment to one or two pages at most. You can also submit this as an outline instead of as written paragraphs. – in fact I would prefer this format. MS Word document only.
What I am looking for is your ideas about how Sustainability and Zoning interact.
For example you could list and describe the ways that current zoning might limit our ability to make a building or a site sustainable
You could list and describe how you think the zoning rules should be modified to make them more sustainable and to encourage sustainable design in sites and buildings.
You could write your own new sustainable zoning code!
