About this book

With this book, the authors have revised and updated the classic 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 book, intersections between land use planning law and environmental regulation are identified and explored. Also identified is the hidden environmental agenda behind exclusionary zoning, the impact of urban sprawl on clean air and critical habitats, and other interconnections.
