Social evaluation of land-use controls seeks to determine whether residents and potential future residents are treated equitably or fairly. Two standards of judicial equity are proposed: (1)A demand for equalizing resources for education among rich and poor communities; and (2)a requirement that zoning not be discriminatory by excluding moderate and low income families. Different types of policy changes are considered to insure fair housing practices. The different mechanics of computation are examined which would best benefit all in terms of transportation to jobs.
