Balancing The “Zoning Budget”, Roderick M. Hills Jr., David Schleicher 2011 New York University

Balancing The “Zoning Budget”, Roderick M. Hills Jr., David Schleicher

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

The politics of urban land use frustrate even the best intentions. A number of cities have made strong political commitments to increasing their local housing supply in the face of a crisis of affordability and availability in urban housing. However, their decisions to engage in “up-zoning,” or increases in the areas in which new housing can be built, are often offset by even more “down-zoning” or laws that decrease the ability of residents in a designated area to build new housing as-of-right. The result is that housing availability does not increase by anywhere near the promises of elected officials.

It begins with a discussion of recent discussions and agreements at the international level and it provides a brief history of sustainable development and climate change policy. The article then explores national and local strategies to address sustainable development goals. Local planning and zoning, transit oriented development, energy efficiency and green infrastructure issues are also addressed.

From Kyoto To Quito: Reassessing Oil Moratorium As An Effective Climate Change Policy From A Property-Based Approach, Patrick Wieland 2011 Yale Law School

From Kyoto To Quito: Reassessing Oil Moratorium As An Effective Climate Change Policy From A Property-Based Approach, Patrick Wieland

Student Scholarship Papers

Leaving oil reserves unexploited has been recently put forward as an innovative climate change policy. President Rafael Correa has announced Ecuador’s decision not to exploit one of its largest oil fields located in the Amazon in exchange for economic compensation from the international community for at least half of the revenue that would have otherwise come from extracting the oil (namely, $3.6 billion). This proposal has been praised for establishing the foundations of the “new economics of planet Earth” and for having the potential to become “a new paradigm for global conservation programs”. This paper criticizes the Yasuni-ITT ...

Lessons From The World Trade Center For Open Space Planning Generally And Boston's Big Dig Specifically, Mary L. Clark

Mary L. Clark

This paper looks to several land use planning issues at stake in both the World Trade Center redevelopment and Central Artery/Tunnel Project, offering some lessons for the future of public open space planning with respect to the influence of the press, the centrality of politics, the urgency of addressing public and private claims of land ownership, the need to engage the public, and seizing the opportunity to create new public transportation links.

Airspace In A Green Economy, Troy A. Rule 2011 University of Missouri School of Law

Airspace In A Green Economy, Troy A. Rule

Faculty Publications

The recent surge of interest in renewable energy and sustainable land use has made the airspace above land more valuable than ever before. However, a growing number of policies aimed at promoting sustainability disregard landowners' airspace rights in ways that can cause airspace to be underutilized. This article analyzes several land use conflicts emerging in the context of renewable energy development by framing them as disputes over airspace. The article suggests that incorporating options or liability rules into laws regulating airspace is a useful way to promote wind and solar energy while still respecting landowners' existing airspace rights. If properly ...


A "Constant And Difficult Task": Making Local Land Use Decisions In States With A Constitutional Right To A Healthful Environment, Michelle Bryan Mudd 2011 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

A "Constant And Difficult Task": Making Local Land Use Decisions In States With A Constitutional Right To A Healthful Environment, Michelle Bryan Mudd

Faculty Law Review Articles

This article first examines the role local governments play in four states that have constitutional rights to a healthful environment -- Illinois, Pennsylvania, Montana, and Hawaii. The author notes that while local governments have long worked as quiet yet integral third partners with state and federal governments by addressing environmental issues through land use regulation, for local governments in environmental rights states, environmental protection is not just an aspiration, but a constitutional mandate. Further, the author states, environmental rights cannot be fully protected in these states without the strong engagement of local government.

The article also describes the constitutional provisions of ...
