Cooperating with nature : confronting natural hazards with land use planning for sustainable communities by Raymond J Burby( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on the breakdown in sustainability -- the capacity of the planet to provide quality of life now and in the future -- that is signaled by disaster. The authors bring to light why land use and sustainability have been ignored in devising public policies to deal with natural hazards. They lay out a vision of sustainability, concrete suggestions for policy reform, and procedures for planning. The book chronicles the long evolution of land-use planning and identifies key components of sustainable planning for hazards. Stressing the importance of balance in land use, the authors offer principles and specific reforms for achieving their visions of sustainability
Making governments plan : state experiments in managing land use by Raymond J Burby( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, a team of scholars from five universities shows how new experiments in growth management can reinvigorate land use planning and help local governments find new solutions to the problems caused by growth and change. Drawing on evidence from five states and scores of cities and counties, the authors show why the benefits of growth are not automatic. Much depends on how well states craft growth management legislation, how amply programs are funded, and how dedicated state officials are to working with localities. By building on these findings, they conclude, states and localities can improve their chances for coping successfully with land use change

Schools in new communities by Raymond J Burby( Book )

The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether the development of new, planned communities has resulted in the provision of better schools and educational opportunities than are provided in less-planned suburban developments. The book outlines the steps and stages in planning an educational system for new communities--building new schools, developing a curriculum, performing subjective and objective evaluation of the system by parents and educators, and assessing the impact of school availability and quality in attracting various population groups to new communities. Also included are suggestions for increasing the effectiveness of the school development process. This book is part of a series summarizing the results of a nationwide study and evaluation of new community development in the United States. (Author/IRT)
