A Word From Our Chairs:

"“The Land Use Policy & Governance track consists of nine paper sessions with a strong emphasis on planning for hazards, better integrating social equity into planning, and evaluating policy innovations. The scheduled presentations are geographically diverse in focus with Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam represented along with the United States. A pre-organized session explores the impact of land use controls and related regulations on housing affordability; another probes the connections between urban form transportation, economic mobility, and quality-of-life; and a third session examines the challenges of governing across boundaries.” Nikhil & Bev

Track Description:

Land Use Policy and Governance papers generally focuses on issues relating to and where land is developed, the impacts of state and local regulations on the use of land, and the role of different actors in the land development process. Additionally, papers in this track examine the impact of state and regional policies and plans on land use including growth management and smart growth programs. Land Use Policy and Governance papers usually employ a variety of methods such as statistical analyses, detailed case studies, and policy evaluations. The scale of analysis also varies widely, from jurisdiction-level studies, to regional or state analyses, and sometimes includes comparisons between cities or regions in different parts of the globe.
