Cities in the wilderness : a new vision of land use in America by Bruce E Babbitt( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The restoration of the Florida Everglades. The return of the wolf to Yellowstone and the condor to the wild. The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Dismantling obsolete dams. Each was a landmark of environmental progress in the 1990s and each was realized under the guidance of then Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt. Now he draws on these experiences to develop a surprising message - such episodic conservation victories, however important, will not be sufficient either to protect our disappearing open spaces or to contain the blight of urban sprawl." "In Cities in the Wilderness, Babbitt makes the case for a new national land use policy. Throughout our history, from George Washington's day to the present, federal policies have encouraged and subsidized destructive resource exploitation and out-of-control development that threaten the American landscape." "From Babbitt's incisive analysis comes a vision and a program for how it should be done: a federal leadership role in land use planning, a new way of thinking about open space that retains local control while acknowledging national interests."--Jacket

Where water flows : the rivers of Arizona by Lawrence Clark Powell( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there were one key to the Southwest history and culture, it might well be the river systems of the region," writes Lawrence Clark Powell in his prologue. Concentrating on seven major waterways in Arizona, Powell illustrates the truth of his statement with a multitude of significant facts and ideas about the geography, history, and literature surrounding these rivers. Along with photographer Michael Collier and pilot Christopher Condit, Powell made aerial surveys in a Cesna 170 to gain a better perspective of the contours of Arizona's river valleys. The twenty-four color photographs provide an unusual map-like overview of dams, canyons, reservoirs, and the rivers themselves. As Powell says, "From the air, history looks far different than from the library." Exploration of rivers was done on the ground, too; and along the way, persons such as sculptor John Waddell, solar architect Reynold Radoccia, and writer-rancher Eulalia Bourne were encountered. Many dusty roads and trails were traveled in the search for headwaters, and some interesting and humorous tales result from encounters with various uniformed individuals. Towns and cities are seen in terms of the impact that rivers had on their inception and growth, and an understanding of how water-flow shapes human destiny becomes more apparent as each river is carefully observed. It is an ancient truth that man goes where water flows, and the early people who settle the Southwest were no exception. For the Hohokam, the Spaniards, and for contemporary populations in every part of Arizona, water has been and continues to be a crucial fact of life. How man has used water has been even more critical. Those with historical knowledge of the world's deserts that ultimately it is fatal for man to urbanize a fragile environment. Today, urban and agricultural Arizona as drawing on their water supply faster than it is being replaced, and the state's years as an artificially verdant desert are numbered. Where Water Flows offers no ready-made salvation formulas; it is in the end, a "lament and a farewell, as well as a thanksgiving for those fruitful years when the rains fell and the rivers ran and the desert bloomed."

Land in conflict : managing and resolving land use disputes by Sean Nolon( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than 25,000 local and regional governments in the United States play a role in making land use decisions that have become increasingly complicated and combative as diverse stakeholders voice their interests and concerns. Every day, public officials must make challenging decisions involving land that impact open space, economic development, transportation, and countless other issues... How officials make these decisions influences the way community members interact with one another and whether they work as a cohesive or a divided group. Over the last one hundred years of land use management by local governments, a common four-stage approval process for decision making has developed: applicants are required to file proposals with a local board or department; these plans are reviewed and sometimes modified; the plans often come before a body such as the planning board or zoning board of appeals, which asks questions, may request further modifications, and hears public comment; and then the public body either makes a decision or refers its recommendation to a final decision-making body such as a town or city council. This standard required process works well for the majority of noncontroversial land use decisions, which can be made quickly by various land use boards using this process. The relatively small number of decisions that are controversial can end up taking most of the board’s time and effort... The authors, all associated with the Consensus Building Institute, have found that the mutual gains approach is a better way to manage the most challenging situations... It draws from the fields of negotiation, consensus building, collaborative problem solving, alternative dispute resolution, public participation, and public administration. The result is a more public, collaborative process designed to tease out the range of interests and criteria, compare various alternatives, and determine which alternatives meet the most interests. Case studies from across the United States and Canada illustrate the principles and steps in the mutual gains approach."--Publisher description
