URBAN REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES: SOME RECENT EXPERIENCE

Assessment of the impact of large-scale regional plans on regional environmental quality is increasingly being recognized as a useful effort. This paper reviews two such studies and draws conclusions from them. The authors suggest that regional assessments cannot be undertaken within the normal context of a planning agency but must generally be treated as a special project. Although such treatment may make these assessments seem costly, they should yield substantial returns to the region in the form of improved information for effective planning and control of environmental quality. /Author/
