Printer-friendly version

Zoning and other land use controls are so much a part of contemporary life that even the most ardent free enterprises usually take for granted the sanctity of such controls in the protection of the urban residential environment. This provocative book raises a number of basic questions about zoning, specifically about recent variants of land use controls. It forthrightly challenges underlying assumptions and principles at the root of the zoning philosophy and is required reading for all those concerned with the future of cities.
