"Land Use and Abuse in America is a call to action. It is intended to inspire everyone involved in land transformation -- residents, business leaders, community officials and professionals -- determined to make a difference.
The old systems of land abuse cannot not provide a sustainably desirable future. Long held invalid and destructive assumptions that resources will never give out, that there is always another unspoiled place to settle, must be abandoned.
In the past, all across America, at every level of geography and at every scale of community, the natural land has been treated harshly and unwisely with adverse consequences. Facing the inevitability of change and growth, and aware of past mishaps, there is urgent need for more insightful planning. As detailed in this book, going forward, a vast opportunity exists to do it well.
