This paper comments briefly on how local officials are dealing with land development problems, then focuses attention on state legislatures and their involvement in growth management. States mentioned include Florida, Maine, and North Carolina. It is concluded that there should be more direct state intervention in growth management. It is also concluded that, in addition to state intervention, regional or sub-regional institutions are required that can cross not only the jurisdictional lines, but also the sectoral lines, public and private. Models at the regional level are mentioned, but it is pointed out that none of them are close to having the capabilities that the problems require.
