Responsible Land Use: Costs and Consequences

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Consumer centered society and the resultant wastes require careful consideration when making decisions on use of lands, the lack thereof. Land use designation can often have wide and lasting effects on related regional planning efforts. The long-term consequences of land use decisions can lead to social costs that may outweigh present economic benefits. This session will explore the use of GIS in finding relationships between potential Brownfields sites and surrounding demographic characteristics, the high health costs of cheap landfills, and how the politics of land use decisions can impact regional transportation planning.
