This course explores the role of government in planning and controlling the use of land, focusing primarily on land-use regulation by local governments. Topics include land-use planning, zoning, subdivision controls and exactions, aesthetic regulation, exclusionary and inclusionary zoning, environmental review, and the interaction between land-use decisions and climate change. We will also look at the U.S. Supreme Court's more significant decisions on when government may acquire private property through eminent domain and when land-use regulation effects a taking requiring the payment of just compensation under the Takings Clause.
