Suing for Affordable Housing -- Who Wins?

A couple of interesting stories in today's Salt Lake Tribune about the lawsuits over the moderate income housing plans in recent years, one about what has happened in Bluffdale since the suit was filed and settled, and the other about a recently filed suit in Summit County.

Several suits are still pending in communities around the state. Recent changes to the LUDMA may change the character of such suits in the future, we'll have to wait and see. I haven't seen one of these suits carried out to a full ruling, it would be interesting to see if the law on adopting such plans really does mandate affordable housing in each community, or whether the community just needs to address it.

Regardless of all the noble-sounding motives for filing such suits, one thing is apparent to me -- Anderson Development has gotten to build what it wants to where it wants to in some of the cases.

I don't necessarily see suits as a bad thing. I was involved in them as a planner on two or three ocassions and while it was not pleasant, in the end, the right thing happened.

Utah planning is lacking in many ways, and in my opinion, there is an often extreme opposition to change of any kind. People think they can just "clamor" away growth and development. The approach used by Baird, et al, is not pretty, but it may serve a useful purpose if it results in political entities doing better planning and staying on their toes.

Since I believe planning is and has always been underfunded and underespected, the tactics being used by some may spur us as a state to consider whether or not we are actually doing adequate planning at all.

That could be a good thing.
