The objective of this course is to provide students with an overview of land use issues and community planning concepts and techniques. The course will introduce landscape ecology principles to build a foundation for sustainable land use planning at a broad scale. We will discuss ethical and legal implications for land use decision-making and develop analytic skills for determining appropriate uses given site specific conditions. The class will then focus on planning techniques at the community scale, covering topics such as master planning, zoning, and sub-division and site plan regulation.
