City Policies

We want to live in cities filled with a diversity of microenterprises, urban farms, community markets, transportation-sharing, cohousing communities, shared housing options, cooperative enterprises, and a wide variety of economic solutions developed

at the grassroots level.


Guidelines for more shareable cities, legal resource library for urban agriculture, webinars, and more!


SELC's cutting edge policy recommendations provide practical steps for policy makers, planners, and advocates to lift up the sharing economy in cities everywhere.

What's happening in the City Policies program. 


The City Policies Program creates research and policy solutions that promote community-based sharing economies. Our work includes identifying legal barriers; creating innovative policy recommendations; policy application and piloting; and collaboration with key partners -- all of which keep SELC on the cutting edge of the resilient cities movement and able to address the evolving legal landscape of the sharing economy.
