LAWS 7759 Land Use Planning (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course will provide participants with a detailed and national review of the techniques used by local and regional governments to regulate the development of real property. Strong emphasis will be placed on the relationship among land use planning, land use law, and natural resources. We will focus in detail on numerous traditional land use planning controls (zoning, subdivision control, and health regulations) but spend considerable time analyzing the legal issues involved in the use of more innovative land use regulations (transfer of development rights, exactions, impact fees, and development agreements). Participants will become well-versed in all aspects of local, regional, and state land use controls and permitting procedures for residential and non-residential development.
