Description

In Land Use Planning and the Environment, the authors have dramatically revised and updated a classic, seminal casebook, Land-Use Planning. Designed primarily for the classroom, the book takes a comprehensive approach to the teaching of planning and zoning law, regulatory takings, and environmental topics.

Throughout the casebook, the authors identify and explore intersections between land use planning law and environmental regulation. They also identify the hidden environmental “agenda” behind exclusionary zoning, the impact of urban sprawl on clean air and critical habitats, and other interconnections.

Professors, students, and law and planning practitioners with strong backgrounds and exposure to “traditional” environmental law will find these intersections a wonderful opportunity to examine familiar topics from a fresh perspective. For other users, Land Use Planning and the Environment will serve as a valuable introduction to the environmental realm, a realm that, more than perhaps any other in American law, is subject to swift and dramatic changes that require the most current teaching materials.
