CONTROLLING STRIP COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT

THIS CASE STUDY TELLS HOW FIVE COMMUNITIES IN THE GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, METROPOLITAN AREA WORKED TOGETHER TO CREATE A MUTUALLY AGREEABLE AND ENFORCEABLE PROGRAM FOR CONTROL OF LAND USES ALONGSIDE A PROPOSED NEW STATE HIGHWAY WHICH WILL EXPAND AN EXISTING MAJOR THROROUGHFARE. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST HERE IS THAT THE LAND USE CONTROL PROGRAM QUICKLY WENT INTO EFFECT, WELL IN ADVANCE OF FINAL HIGHWAY DESIGN OR RIGHT-OF-WAY ACQUISITION. IN THE PROCESS, THE ASSOCIATION FORMED BY THE COMMUNITIES AND INTERESTED CITIZENS CONVINCED THE STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT TO ALTER ITS USUAL FIVE-LANE HIGHWAY DESIGN AND INSTEAD TO BUILD A FOUR- LANE HIGHWAY WITH MEDIAN STRIP. /DOT/
