Book Description

States and their local governments have practical tools to help combat urban sprawl, protect farmland, promote affordable housing, and encourage redevelopment. They appear in the American Planning Association's Growing Smart Legislative Guidebook: Model Statutes for Planning and the Management of Change. The Guidebook and its accompanying User Manual are the culmination of APA's seven-year Growing Smart project, an effort to draft the next generation of model planning and zoning legislation for the United States.

The Guidebook is also pertinent to those who are affected by planning decisions and who have an interest in how the statutes are revised, including:

Local planners



Real estate and design professionals

Smart growth and affordable housing advocates


Highway and transit specialists
