In this course we will discuss the role of law in land use planning and community development, and limitations on the power of government to regulate land use. Topics include the police power, property rights, eminent domain, regulatory takings, zoning and other forms of government regulation, constitutional restrictions on land use regulation, and environmental protection. Contemporary issues will be added to the basic curriculum as the opportunity arises. We will often use open discussion as a means to reach sustainable conclusions concerning land use policy issues and conflicts.
