Abstract

Development pressures existing in the United States today have been responsible for the substantial disappearance of formerly available open space. The general public perception is that the landscape/view is changing and that the change is not necessarily good. The loss of open land has brought public pressure on policy makers to decide the best use of remaining open space. Should it be left to developers to make the determination or should a community assert its own self-determined vision guided by professional expertise?
