THEY ALSO HAVE FAVORABLE ATTITUDES TOWARD FARMLAND. SINCE PUBLIC CONTROL OF LAND USE ADJACENT TO THE INTERSTATE IS MINIMAL, NO MEANS OF ASSURING SCENIC VALUE EXISTS. ALTHOUGH LANDOWNERS INDICATE FEW PLANNED CHANGES IN LAND USE, PUBLIC CONTROLS SUCH AS ZONING, SCENIC EASEMENTS OR DEVELOPMENT RIGHTS NEED TO BE EXPLORED IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT THE RESULTS.
