The Ninth Edition of Planning and Control of Land Development continues its tradition of providing a thorough and comprehensive review of land use law. All chapters have been revised and updated; this edition covers recent takings cases, the Supreme Court's important new decision on the federal Fair Housing Act, and the Court's new free speech decision on sign regulation. Special attention has been given to developments under the federal Religious Land Use Act. Teaching cases are the same as in the last edition with new cases as needed to update presentation of the materials.
This casebook is different, and better than any other you have ever seen in two important ways. First, because sustainability is important in virtually every aspect of land use law, the authors have signaled sustainability issues throughout the book no separate chapter, no single-subject casebook, just the fully integrated treatment of this critical subject.
Second, hundreds of URLs been added or updated and converted to tiny URLs for easy entry. So far as we know, for the first time ever in any casebook you will also find over 600 Quick Response (QR) Codes so that teachers and students using a free app on their smartphones need only point and click to be taken directly to the vast array of resources available on the worldwide web. This casebook has broken the bonds of the printed page.
