Description

Land use planning in New York City is governed by a number of regulatory programs including zoning, environmental regulations, and the NYC building code. However, in New York City, as in many other cities, powerful economic and political forces really determine how land is developed. Community and special interest groups confront politicians and developers in determining what eventually gets built. This course looks at all of these factors, focusing in particular on current planning controversies.
