Summary
"With population expected to increase over the next 15 years, states recognize that how they manage growth and development will affect economic prospects, attractiveness to migrants, and quality of life for residents. To provide the necessary housing, offices, and stores, without the negative development impacts of the past, states are addressing key related issues such as sustainability, infrastructure, transportation, and density in ways that transcend "politics as usual." They also are addressing old battles over NIMBYism." "This book chronicles land use controls used in the past generation, and describes recent trends that show how states are changing their perspective. It provides the facts on state planning and environmental efforts both in the past and now; voter willingness to raise taxes for transit, open space, and related smart growth initiatives; increasing state protections of private property rights; the growth and impact of land trusts that restrict land development; and the rise in special districts and private governance." "Case studies of six states, representing diverse political cultures, locations, and degrees of progressiveness, are analyzed in regard to how they have dealt with issues such as public facilities, transportation, open space, affordable housing, and economic development." --Book Jacket
