New Book Features Delaware's State Planning Program
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy has just published Planning for States and Nation States. This book is a compilation of research about the role of the US federal government and European Union and compares the land use and spatial planning structures in five US states (Oregon, California, Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey) and five western European nations (the Netherlands, Denmark, France, UK and Ireland). To our knowledge, the chapter on Delaware represents the first examination of Delaware's State Planning program by an outside researcher. The chapter on Delaware and the comparisons found elsewhere in the book contain valuable insights into the unique, innovative and effective planning framework that we have created here in Delaware.
