Collaborative Planning for Wetlands and Wildlife: Issues and Examples Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Collaborative Planning for Wetlands and Wildlife" presents numerous case studies that demonstrate how different communities have creatively reconciled problems between developers and environmentalists. It answers questions asked by regulators, environmentalists, and developers who seek practical alternatives to the existing case-by-case permitting process, and offers valuable lessons from past and ongoing areawide planning efforts.

Book News Annotation:

Growing out of a series of policy dialogues initiated by Lindell L. Marsh in 1986 through the Federal Policy Council of the Urban Land Institute, this volume builds on past experience to propose guidelines for more effective planning, and it presents numerous case studies that demonstrate how different communities have creatively reconciled problems between developers and environmentalists.
