About this book

Unlike many who separate environmental from other social issues in their analyses of the locally unwanted land use (LULU) problem, O'Looney argues that the issues are really connected and must be addressed jointly. He frames the question this way: What is the appropriate distribution of land development rights and responsibilities overall?, then offers an answer based on Madison's conception of property and Jefferson's ideas about small-scale democracy. In doing so O'Looney examines the ideological roots of the NIMBY-LULU problem and the various zoning, land-use and antidiscrimination policies that have been created to solve it. A thoughtful study for corporate and public executives, who need new ways to reconcile economic development with other social needs, and an innovative, challenging analysis for the public policy experts and political scientists who advise them.


The Evolution of LULU Problems; Property Law, Ideology and the Dilemma of Habitation; Land-Use Politics; Land-Use Control and the Idea of Common Pool Resources; Policy Tools and Approaches to Land-Use Conflict; Generating Policy Innovations in Land-Use Control; Policy Options; Features, Qualification and Objections to the Proposed Framework Policy.
