At the heart and soul of community and regional planning is land use. How we use land and the institutional and legal basis by which we establish and implement land use goals are key elements in how our communities and regions are shaped. This course examines the foundations of land use planning, which begins with an understanding of attitudinal, value, and ethical perspectives of how land resources are used. The range of land use implementation approaches — regulatory, fiscal, incentives, and public investment — are also evaluated. The course additionally discusses the importance of ecological planning and design as prospects for contemporary land use planning to create sustainable communities and regions.
