Weir River Estuary: Land Protection Plan, Chantal Lefebvre, Michelle Portman Dec 2004

Weir River Estuary: Land Protection Plan, Chantal Lefebvre, Michelle Portman

Urban Harbors Institute Publications

If economic growth were the only measure of a community’s health and vitality, then the communities of Cohasset, Hingham, and Hull are fairing well. But this economic success is generally accompanied by changes in the physical landscape that can be unsettling for residents, especially when it means more development and expansion at the expense of culturally and socially important open space areas such as parks, woods, and marshes. The rapid pace and fragmented nature of such sprawling development gives communities little opportunity to come to terms with the long-term impacts, which in turn can lead to a sense of powerlessness …


The Federalist Dimension Of Regulatory Takings Jurisprudence, Stewart E. Sterk Nov 2004

The Federalist Dimension Of Regulatory Takings Jurisprudence, Stewart E. Sterk

Articles

Conventional wisdom teaches that the Supreme Court's takings doctrine is a muddle. Appearances, however, are deceiving. The "property" protected by the Takings Clause is defined not by a single sovereign, but by the legislative enactments and judicial pronouncements of fifty separate states. As a result, federalism concerns - underappreciated in the takings literature - do and should play an important role in shaping the Court's takings doctrine. In particular, these concerns make it inappropriate for the Court to use the Takings Clause as a vehicle for articulating a comprehensive theory of the limits on government power to regulate land. This …


Yes, Thankfully, Euclid Lives, Charles M. Haara, Michael Allan Wolf Nov 2004

Yes, Thankfully, Euclid Lives, Charles M. Haara, Michael Allan Wolf

UF Law Faculty Publications

Professors Haar and Wolf reiterate their endorsement of Progressive jurisprudence, as embodied in the Supreme Court's opinion in Village of Euclid v. Ambler Realty Co., despite Professor Eric Claeys's effort to expose the political theory underlying Progressive legal thought. They highlight problems with Professor Claeys's portrayal of the actual practice of zoning and with his use of history, problems that seriously undercut Professor Claeys's findings regarding the political beliefs of early zoning and planning advocates, the evolution of zoning law in the courts, and the role natural law played in American legal history.


Religion And Law Use: Constraints On Local Boards' Decision Making, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher Oct 2004

Religion And Law Use: Constraints On Local Boards' Decision Making, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

While local legislatures generally have broad authority to enact land use regulations that serve a public interest, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act as well as constitutional limits found in the First Amendment limit religious land use regulations that seek to restrict religious freedom. This article explores the Second Circuit’s decision in Westchester Day School v. Village of Mamaroneck, and makes suggestions about the future implications of the court’s decision.

Urban Harbors Institute Publications

In Winter 2003/2004 the Coastal States Organization (CSO) sponsored a national survey of state coastal resource managers to better understand their science and technology needs. The web-based survey was sponsored by CSO with funding provided by the Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) at the University of New Hampshire. This survey builds upon a previous survey conducted by CSO in 1999. CSO contracted with the Urban Harbors Institute (UHI) at UMass-Boston to prepare the survey questions and final report. The University of New Hampshire Survey Center was contracted to conduct the survey and analyze the results.

Shielding Board Members: Municipalities Should Protect Them From Suits, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher Aug 2004

Shielding Board Members: Municipalities Should Protect Them From Suits, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

Both individual land use board members and the municipal governments containing these boards are concerned with the liability of the boards, and of individual members from legal challenges stemming from their decisions. Legal actions against these boards, and the potential for subsequent liability of individual members could put significant financial burdens on municipalities and also discourage competent citizens from serving on these local land use boards. This commentary reviews the impact of two recent New York state cases, and their affect on state legislation concerning these topics.

Clarifying The Rules And Roles Of Land Use Boards, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher Jun 2004

Clarifying The Rules And Roles Of Land Use Boards, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

This article discusses the rules and roles of land use boards, including planning boards, and zoning boards of appeals. Local governments are given broad authority to create land use regulations by the New York state legislature, and so long as they stay within the boundaries of the state land use statutes, the local government’s fact based decisions are usually upheld in face of legal challenges in court. This column analyzes several recently decided cases in an attempt to clarify the uncertainties involved with the decisions of local land use boards, and challenges to land use board decisions.


State Coastal Observations And Monitoring Needs: Results Of A Survey To Assess Coastal Management Needs (Draft Report), Jeff Benoit, Chantal Lefebvre, Dan Hellin, Regan Maund, Jack Thigpen May 2004

State Coastal Observations And Monitoring Needs: Results Of A Survey To Assess Coastal Management Needs (Draft Report), Jeff Benoit, Chantal Lefebvre, Dan Hellin, Regan Maund, Jack Thigpen

Urban Harbors Institute Publications

The success of the U.S. Coastal Ocean Observing System will be measured, in part, by how well the needs of the coastal management community are being addressed. The results of this survey indicate that the two most important management issues facing coastal programs are land use and habitat change. It is essential that the planning and implementation of the USCOOS take this fact into account and place a priority on addressing these high priority management needs. This can only be accomplished through the direct long-term involvement of the coastal management community with USCOOS efforts at the national and regional levels. …

Takings Formalism And Regulatory Formulas: Exactions And The Consequences Of Clarity, Mark Fenster May 2004

Takings Formalism And Regulatory Formulas: Exactions And The Consequences Of Clarity, Mark Fenster

UF Law Faculty Publications

A vocal minority of the U.S. Supreme Court recently announced its suspicion that lower courts and state and local administrative agencies are systematically ignoring constitutional rules intended to limit, through heightened judicial review, exactions as a land use regulatory tool. This article argues that the Court's suspicions are well founded but that blame for judicial and administrative noncompliance lies with the Court's bifurcated approach to the Takings Clause.


Religion And Land Use: Westchester Day School V. Village Of Mamaroneck, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher Apr 2004

Religion And Land Use: Westchester Day School V. Village Of Mamaroneck, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

The Westchester Day School and the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) of the Village of Mamaroneck were involved with several lawsuits stemming from a rescinded “negative” State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) determination by the ZBA after local public outcry of the school’s expansion. This article explores the relationship between Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) and land use regulations, and comes to the conclusions that Congress enacted the RLUIPA to ensure religious organization landowners are not singled out to bear the burdens of the general public.


Seqra Challenges: Court Creates New Rule On Statute Of Limitations, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher Feb 2004

Seqra Challenges: Court Creates New Rule On Statute Of Limitations, John R. Nolon, Jessica A. Bacher

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

The New York State Environmental Quality Review Act, known around the New York legal community as SEQRA, triggers any time a public action may have an adverse impact on the environment. The determinations of this process, intertwined with public actions such as, site plan approvals, variance requests, or any other land use or public action, are often challenged by those parties who are unsatisfied with the result. This article discusses the extensive case history regarding when SEQRA actions are ripe for legal challenge.


Sustainable Development Scenarios For The Richard B. Russell Parkway, Jesse Fountain, Judith R. Wasserman, Jamie Baker Roskie Jan 2004

Sustainable Development Scenarios For The Richard B. Russell Parkway, Jesse Fountain, Judith R. Wasserman, Jamie Baker Roskie

Land Use Clinic

For many years local elected officials, the state legislative delegation, and community leaders worked diligently to get Richard Russell Parkway extended to Interstate 75 and provide the Warner Robins area with a second interchange to serve the City and Robins AFB. The project became a reality in the spring of 2002 when the Georgia Department of Transportation awarded a construction contract for the Parkway's extension. During the spring of 2003, with construction work progressing toward an October 31, 2004, completion date, the Mayor and City Council decided to explore alternative development concepts for the Parkway.

Is Land Special? The Unjustified Preference For Landownership In Regulatory Takings Law, Eduardo M. Peñalver Jan 2004

Is Land Special? The Unjustified Preference For Landownership In Regulatory Takings Law, Eduardo M. Peñalver

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

This article critiques the Court's attempt to cabin the Lucas "per se" takings rule by limiting it to real property. It argues that the distinction between real and personal property cannot be justified by history or the differing expectations of property owners. It then applies five theoretical frameworks (libertarian, personhood, utilitarian, public choice, and Thomistic-Aristotelian natural law) and finds that none of them supports the jurisprudential distinction between real and personal property. As a result, the article argues that "because the distinction between personal and real property is an unprincipled one, it cannot save the Court from the unpalatable implications …
