Research Projects
Land Use

The Growth Management & Land Use Regulation Project develops a "political market" framework combining elements of political economy and property rights theories with work on local government structure. This framework conceptualizes changes in land use rules as the result of a dynamic contracting process between the suppliers and demanders of change in a community mediated by political institutions. Current work includes surveys of city and county planning officials and study of amendments to local land use plans. This project is supported by the DeVoe Moore Center and National Science Foundation award #030799.
