Urban & Regional Planning | Land Use

Faculty: S. Adler, Y. Fang, M. Gebhardt, N. McClintock, E. Seltzer

The traditional core of planning programs, the land use specialization is characterized by a generalist, comprehensive approach to addressing multiple and interrelated issues. Thus, land use planning includes, but is not limited to, a focus on housing, infrastructure, open space, and economic development. The scale of land use concerns range from a specific site as in the application of development standards for a convenience store, to the region as a whole, as in the shared responsibility for providing housing for low- and moderate-income households.
