Two of the nation's leading experts in land-use law and planning provide a comprehensive guide to drafting and updating land-use regulations in this essential reference.

21st Century Land Development Code is a complete planning and law model code integrating traditional Euclidean zoning with green codes, new urbanism, and smart growth. It covers sustainability, traditional neighborhood development, transit-oriented development, mixed use centers, subdivision regulations, official mapping, adequate public facilities, variances, conditional uses, religious uses, adult uses, telecommunications, and complete forms and procedures.

Commentaries in each section provide guidance on everything you need to know for adapting the code to your community. Illustrations, definitions, forms, checklists, and specifications for documents are included.

The companion CD-ROM, which is searchable, contains the entire text of the code and commentaries, along with color illustrations.
