UEPP 461 - Land Use Law


Land use planning is an attempt to reconcile the conflict between individual property rights and collective environmental goals. This course examines the American legal system’s role in framing and resolving this dilemma. It provides an understanding of the legal framework that creates our unique ‘bottom up’ land use regulatory system. It also examines the practical and philosophical implications of federal constitutional restrictions on local government land use authority, including ‘takings’ and housing discrimination cases.

Prerequisites & Notes: One course from: ENVS 303, ENVS 305, or UEPP 355; or instructor permission.
Credits: 4
