ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS FOR HIGHWAY ORGANIZATIONS

THE AUTHOR PROPOSES THREE GOALS FOR HIGHWAY PLANNING AGENCIES IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT: (1) AVOID ANY DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT; (2) MINIMIZE DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT, IF THEY CANNOT BE COMPLETELY AVOIDED; AND (3) ENHANCE THE ENVIRONMENT WHENEVER IT IS POSSIBLE TO DO SO. IN GENERAL, THESE GOALS CAN BE MET BY WORKING WITH ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS AND SOLICTING PUBLIC OPINION. MORE SPECIFICALLY, HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS CAN ENCOURAGE THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF LAND USE CONTROLS ON A WIDER BASIS THAN SIMPLY WITHIN THE RIGHTS-OF-WAY UNDER HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT JURISDICTION.
