The primary objective of this research was to closely examine land use planning and policy implementation legal and organizational tools and techniques currently being used, innovations in these modifications most commonly used, other tools and techniques which might prove to be useful, proposals for improving the implementation process, and innovative legislation directed toward improving the implementation of land use planning and policies at various levels of government with a view toward making recommendations for action most likely to result in improving land use planning and policies implementation. Analysis revealed that there is a need for more coordination of often conflicting programs and policies at all levels of government; a need for making the existing tools and techniques more flexible through providing more incentives for developers to produce better designs and by granting more discretionary authority to planning controls adminstrators and other land use legislation into coordinated omnibus ordinances for better coordination and greater ease of administration based on improved state enabling legislation; a need for more systematic land use planning and policies implementation programs; and a need for continued experimentation in improving implementation processes. The analysis also indicated that there has not been enough cumulative experience for empirical research to be conducted to demonstrate the most effective combinations of legal and organizational tools and techniques for carrying out land use planning and policies.
