Overview

This dynamic casebook focuses on the role of the lawyer in land use regulatory matters and the factors that influence land development decisions. It emphasizes the current practice of land use law and cutting-edge urban planning and sustainable development legal and policy issues.

The Fourth Edition introduces a wealth of new cases and materials covering such diverse topics as the rights of religious landowners, recent takings law, the effects of the fiscal crisis on local and municipal land use regulations, regulation of green energy projects and other environmental land-use issues, local zoning to regulate marijuana dispensaries and the continuing ethical challenges in the administration of local land use regulations.

Hallmark features of Land Use Regulation: Cases and Materials:

Clear, practice-based emphasis on the lawyer’s role in land development.

Highly diverse source material includes news articles, law review articles, essays, case profiles, and examples of pertinent documents.

Emphasis on most current material and recent cases to convey the dynamic context of land use law.

Examines the relative contributions of law, local government discretion, and politics in the decision-making process around land use questions.

Comprehensive treatment of third-party rights in land development as individuals or organized groups position themselves in opposition to planned development.

Exploration of ethical issues that arise in land use decision-making.

Flexible structure allows instructors to teach the basic tools of land use regulation and then choose to emphasize specific areas of modern land use law.

• Comprehensive Teacher’s Manual.

Thoroughly updated, the revised Fourth Edition presents:

• The continuing development of the "public use" question in takings law after Kelo, including the legal disputes over when land is sufficiently "blighted" to legally support programs by redevelopment agencies, as in the New York Goldstein and Kaur decisions, and the Supreme Court's most recent takings decision, Stop the Beach Renourishment.

• The intersection of land use and First Amendment rights, particularly the interplay with the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses .

• The steady flow of cases interpreting the rights of religious landowners under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.

• The effects of the fiscal crisis on local government land use regulations.

• The land use effects of “shrinking" cities.

Land use regulation of green energy projects, particularly the siting of windmill farms and transmission line corridors.
