As the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized, zoning is ultimately defined by local circumstances, which change from town to town and year to year. Land uses that were prohibited in the past may be celebrated in the future, and vice versa. Land Use Law: Zoning in the 21st Century was created to provide land use professionals with practical advice on zoning issues and up-to-date analyses of the legal issues they are likely to encounter in their practice. These tools go beyond the black letter law and focus on modern examples. In some cases the tools are familiar, but used in unique ways. In others, the circumstances demand truly "outside-the-box" thinking. A range of modern topics is covered in this volume, including: Harmonizing zoning goals Promoting economic development Managing stormwater Promoting pedestrian- and transit-oriented development Regulating adult use establishments Setting standards for gun sales and use Planning for urban agriculture Addressing foreclosures and blight Zoning for cellular communications Regulating hydraulic fracturing Planning for wind-generated energy Regulating digital signage Additionally, this volume provides appendices containing checklists, tips and guidelines, as well as sample ordinances, agreements, forms and other documents that land use professionals will find practical and helpful.

Zoned in the USA

Why are American cities, suburbs, and towns so distinct? Compared to European cities, those in the United States are characterized by lower densities and greater distances; neat, geometric layouts; an abundance of green space; a greater level of social segregation reflected in space; and—perhaps most noticeably—a greater share of individual, single-family detached housing. In Zoned in the USA, Sonia A. Hirt argues that zoning laws are among the important but understudied reasons for the cross-continental differences. Hirt shows that rather than being imported from Europe, U.S. municipal zoning law was in fact an institution that quickly developed its own, distinctly American profile. A distinct spatial culture of individualism—founded on an ideal of separate, single-family residences apart from the dirt and turmoil of industrial and agricultural production—has driven much of municipal regulation, defined land-use, and, ultimately, shaped American life. Hirt explores municipal zoning from a comparative and international perspective, drawing on archival resources and contemporary land-use laws from England, Germany, France, Australia, Russia, Canada, and Japan to challenge assumptions about American cities and the laws that guide them.
