Looking forward to making a call to action this Thursday at the @TEDxBeaconStreet Salon at +TripAdvisor -- reform zoning to accommodate tiny houses and accessory dwelling units. There's all kinds of good design innovation in housing right now. We need to change the rules -- codes, ordinances, and land-use regulations -- to let it flourish.

Friends: After serving for 12 years as the Lincoln Institute’s first communications director, I'm taking on a new role as Senior Fellow in the Office of the President. The position allows me to step back to focus on writing, research, and storytelling. Given rapid changes in the media industry, organizations around the world are experimenting with new methods of engagement; for example, the City of Detroit recently hired a journalist as a chief storyteller, to amplify the key elements of the city’s regeneration. In addition to Land Lines, where I've already been producing the special feature Mayor’s Desk, I'll continue to write for The Atlantic’s CityLab and The Boston Globe; I'll be exploring other platforms including video and podcasts; and I'll be available for media for interviews on selected topics. I'm going to continue to manage the annual Journalists Forum, as well as a reinvented Lincoln Lecture series. I'm looking forward to this new chapter, and welcome input and ideas. The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy seeks to improve quality of life through the effective use, taxation, and stewardship of land.

Another way to think about it: accessory dwelling units and tiny houses are like the electric scooters of housing. Not everybody needs a three-ton vehicle on four wheels powered by fossil fuels. Now cities just need to changes the rules to let them flourish. via @wsj https://www.wsj.com/articles/cities-hope-for-big-benefits-from-tiny-houses-1530065161?

Not just for nerds: this is about increasing the stock of affordable housing in a hot-market city approaching SFO-level ridiculousness. Most people have modest space needs and just want a roof over their heads. Come on down to the #BSASpace tonight to talk granny flats, in-law-apartments, carriage houses, tiny houses, and other accessory dwelling units 6 o'clock @BSAAIA with @MarcyOstberg @ceherbert @Harvard_JCHS @lilycreynolds

From LA to ATL to of course NYC, his stage was the built environment. My latest @CityLab https://www.citylab.com/life/2018/06/tom-wolfe-on-5-cities/561683/
