Hyde, Leslie C.
Prepared as part of the program of the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development under Title V of the Rural Development Act of 1972, this compendium cites 194 state laws related to public control of privately owned land outside developed urban areas in 12 Northeastern States. Arranged alphabetically and ordered chronologically, this compendium is comprised of a state-by-state listing of principal land-use laws as passed through the 1975 legislative sessions in: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. Information given on each act cited includes the following: (1) title, (2) date enacted, (3) date of amendment (if any), (4) the agency or agencies charged with administering the act, and (5) a summary of the Act's major provisions. Presented via chart, a classification system is provided for this compendium to aid in identification of laws relative to specific topics and in comparison with similar statutes in different states. The four major categories of the compendium classification system are identified as: (1) policy power; (2) use of public agencies; (3) use of tax manipulation; and (4) public acquisition of open space land.
