Washington Real Property Deskbook Series Volume 5 Land Use Planning

Publication Year: 4th ed. updated 2016   Publication Type: Deskbook


Volume 5 deals with the process of land use regulation—the development and administration of those rules that guide and control the decisions on where and how development may occur; what considerations are material, and by what processes those decisions should be made. The focus in this volume is on the regulatory processes—such as those set out under the Growth Management Act (GMA), Shoreline Management Act (SMA), and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) at the programmatic level—as well as the considerations that apply to communities and regulatory agencies wrestling with what the rules ought to be. Volume 5 attempts to outline how future growth problems may be addressed as well as regulation under current law. Includes downloadable forms.

The 2016 supplement to Volume 5, Land Use Planning, reflects major developments through August 2016 in the process of land use regulation and associated regulatory processes. Because of significant changes in the law since publication of the fourth edition in 2011, the following chapters have been completely replaced rather than merely supplemented: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11, 15, 17, and 19.
