JUNKYARDS, GERANIUMS AND JURISPRUDENCE: AESTHETICS AND THE LAW

LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED AND FUNDED, TO ENCOURAGE, DEMONSTRATE, AND EFFECTUATE THE APPLICATION OF AESTHETIC AND BEAUTIFICATION CONCEPTS. SPECIAL CONFERENCES INVOLVING MANY GROUPS HAVE BEEN HELD DURING THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. FEW OF THESE HAVE EMPHASIZED THE LEGAL ELEMENTS OF AESTHETICS. THIS HAS MOTIVATED THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT LAW SECTION OF THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION TO FORMULATE A NATIONAL INSTITUTE ADDRESSED TO THE LEGAL ASPECTS, WITH SOME OF THE NATIONS TOP LEGAL SPECIALISTS IN THIS FIELD AS FACULTY. THE PAPERS, IN FULL, WRITTEN BY THESE EXPERTS, HAVE BEEN REPRODUCED IN THIS VOLUME. THEY COVER FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL PROBLEMS OF BEAUTIFICATION, LEGISLATIVE APPROACHES, USE OF POLICE POWER AND EMINENT DOMAIN, TAX PROBLEMS OF SCENIC EASEMENTS, PLANNING, ZONING AND FUTURE MEANS OF AESTHETIC CONTROL. /AUTHOR/
