Fletcher, Alan M., Ed.; And Others
Some 35 papers resulting from presentations made at the 1974 Conference on Rural Land-Use Policy in the Northeast constitute this report on conference proceedings. Part 1 presents papers from the general sessions which deal with generalities relative to the following four major alternatives: (1) police power, (2) transfer of development rights, (3) public acquisition of easements, and (4) tax and other special incentive policies. Discussions relative to the impact on rural land-use of public agency administrative decisions and the role of the citizen in influencing administrative and legislative land-use policy are also presented. Part 2 presents representative workshop papers which provide examples of alternative policies and programs already underway and describe specific experiences with: use of police power as a land-use control technique; tax and special incentive policies as land-use control techniques; development rights, public acquisition, and easements as land-use control techniques; and influence of public agencies and the legislative process. Part 3 presents conference implications for research and education and the consensus, directions, and issues of rural land-use policy in the Northeast. The conference program, a list of participants, and information on conference sponsors are appended. (JC)
