This course investigates land development in America from the perspective of political imperatives and policy frameworks at the local, state, and national level. It leverages political science, history, law, and urban planning to understand how public policy does (and does not) guide land use patterns, and how it might do so differently in the future. “Land use” covers everything from inner-city development to suburban sprawl, natural area protection to intensive agriculture. In each of these settings, the public frequently debates what the wisest, safest, and most sustainable uses of the land are, and utilizes a variety of different policy mechanisms to bring them about. This class provides an introduction to those policy mechanisms, understanding them as a product of political, historical, and legal processes. It provides a window not only into land use debates, but into the broader nature of policy making.
