CITIZENS PARTICIPATION AND THE NEW ENVIRONMENTALISM

THE NEW ENVIRONMENTALISM MOVEMENT HAS SHIFTED THE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION DEBATE FROM URBAN PLANNING TO CALLING FOR A NEW SYSTEM WHICH RECOGNIZES THE CONSEQUENCES OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES. TRADITIONALLY, THESE CONSEQUENCES HAVE BEEN MET WITH LAND-USE ZONING. THE USE OF LAND-USE ZONING AS AN URBAN PLANNING TOOL HAS BEEN DELEGATED TO LOCALITIES BY STATES UNDER THE GUISE OF PUBLIC HEALTH. TO PROVIDE THE REGIONAL PLANNING SECTOR WITH A SIMILAR PLANNING TOOL, SUCH AS LAND-USE ZONING, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO RESTORE SOME OF THE DELEGATED POWERS OF THE STATES. /AUTHOR/
