Urban Sprawl Laws (RV-10257)
The social, environmental, and economic state of our communities, as well as the health of our population, is affected by our urban environment. Historically, the central objective of planning laws and land use regulations was to safeguard negative consequences associated with the built environment. Concern about rapidly developing urban regions has prompted state legislatures to pass planning laws to manage urban development. This interactive online course will focus on traditional growth management regulations and development restrictions employed in the local, regional, and state policy-making arenas. This course will also discuss a new approach heralded by California in Senate Bill 375 that focuses on regulating air quality standards through land development patterns. The types and functions of both traditional and new planning reform laws are the focus of this course.
