STATE-WIDE LAND USE PLANNING

VERMONT AND MAINE HAVE PASSED TOUGH, COMPREHENSIVE STATE LAND USE PLANNING LEGISLATION WHICH CONSOLIDATES ALL ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INTO ONE PROCESS AND IMPLEMENTS MULTIPLE OBJECTIVES SUCH AS ECONOMIC, ECOLOGICAL, AND SOCIAL GOALS. THESE PROGRAMS WERE SET UP TO SOLVE THE INEQUITIES OF ZONING AND ITS INHERENT FAILURE TO CONTROL LAND USE. THE FOLLOWING ASPECTS OF THESE LAND USE PLANNING PROGRAMS ARE DISCUSSED: THE RATIONALE FOR STATE-WIDE LAND USE PLANNING, THE GOVERNING LEGISLATIVE STATUTES, AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCIES INVOLVED. THE STATE LAWS ARE DISCUSSED SEPARATELY AND THEN COMPARED AND CONTRASTED. SEVERAL CRITICISMS OF THE TWO LAWS ARE PRESENTED AND AN ANALYSIS IS MADE CONCERNING THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF STATE-WIDE LAND USE PLANNING.
