Environmental protection is a global issue that largely depends on effective and timely action at the local level. In ?The Environmental Planning Handbook ?, Tom and Katherine Daniels clarify complex environmental issues, examine current sustainability efforts, and offer step-by-step guidance for local governments to incorporate sustainable environmental quality into local and regional comprehensive planning. Practical and comprehensive A hands-on and thorough approach sets ?The Environmental Planning Handbook ? apart. The authors tell how to assess local environment conditions and create an action plan. They discuss the role of environmental law and economics, ethics, and ecology in decision-making. The core of the book covers planning for public health (water supply and quality, solid waste and recycling, and toxic waste), natural areas (landscapes, wildlife habitat, wetlands, coastal zones, and hazard and disaster mitigation), working landscapes (farming, ranching, forestry, and mining), and the built environment (transportation, energy, sustainability, and greenfield development). Each chapter reviews relevant federal and state-level environmental laws and programs and advises local governments how to conform to federal and state regulations and use their own planning tools and techniques to customize their comprehensive plan. The authors explain scientific considerations that planners must understand. They review positive trends in environmental quality and point out what is most essential to ensure continued progress. Help for public- and private-sector planners The Environmental Planning Handbook also discusses the important role that private, nonprofit groups have come to play in environmental protection efforts. Case studies describe aspects of environmental planning in communities of all sizes. Photographs, tables, illustrations, a list of contacts, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography augment the text. A model ordinance for environmental impact assessment is included as an appendix. This book-straightforward, practical, and action-oriented-is an essential resource for environmental planners and students, local officials, and concerned citizens.
