ENST 356 - Environment and Land-Use Planning


1 unit(s)
(Same as GEOG 356  and URBS 356 ) This seminar focuses on land-use issues such as open-space planning, urban design, transportation planning, and the social and environmental effects of planning and land use policies. The focus of the course this year is impacts of planning policies (such as transportation, zoning, or growth boundaries) on environmental quality, including open space preservation, farmland conservation, and environmental services. We begin with global and regional examples and then apply ideas in the context of Dutchess County’s trajectory of land use change and planning policies. Susan Blickstein.

Prerequisite(s): one 200-level course in Geography, Urban Studies or Environmental Studies.

Not offered in 2017/18.

One 3-hour period.
