14 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 requires an environmental impact statement for any major federal action affecting the human environment. Now many state and local governments require impact statements from state agencies or private agencies. This handbook presents a standardized approach to the development and implementation of policy. Reviewed are requirements and proposals by states and other political subdivisions. Discussed is the content, format, and interpretation of impact statements. Recommended guidelines for preparing impact statements are outlined. Included are descriptions of projects and the existing environment, impacts of/on the environment, alternative strategies, unavoidable adverse impacts, impacts over time, and irreversible/irretrievable commitments. The appendices contain addresses for available guidelines, annotated and selected bibliographies, manuals, and newsletters, a listing of public and private organizations, and a review of interpretation of impact statements in the courts.

Sprawl costs : economic impacts of unchecked development by Robert W Burchell( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publishers Description) "The environmental impacts of sprawling development have been well documented, but few comprehensive studies have examined its economic costs. In 1996, a team of experts undertook a multi-year study designed to provide quantitative measures of the costs and benefits of different forms of growth. Sprawl Costs presents a concise and readable summary of the results of that study. The authors analyze the extent of sprawl, define an alternative, more compact form of growth, project the magnitude and location of future growth, and compare what the total costs of those two forms of growth would be if each was applied throughout the nation. They analyze the likely effects of continued sprawl, consider policy options, and discuss examples of how more compact growth would compare with sprawl in particular regions. Finally, they evaluate whether compact growth is likely to produce the benefits claimed by its advocates. The book represents a comprehensive and objective analysis of the costs and benefits of different approaches to growth, and gives decision-makers and others concerned with planning and land use realistic and useful data on the implications of various options and policies."
