The Housing Regulation Database is a joint initiative of the Pioneer Institute for Public Policy Research and Harvard's Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston. The searchable database contains a unique, comprehensive set of information on the zoning codes, subdivision requirements, and environmental regulations that as of 2004 governed land use in 187 communities in eastern Massachusetts. Scholars, officials, builders, consultants, experts, activists, and interested citizens can search the database by regulation or locality and can download information in a variety of formats. The site also houses summary reports and analyses of the data.
