Abstract

This article focuses on smart growth issues and opportunities in New York with a specific focus on regionalism. Part I of this article addresses the work of the Legislative Commission on Rural Resources to modernize state land use statutes. Part II examines Governor Pataki’s Quality Communities Executive Order and the resulting Task Force Report. Part III critiques more than a half dozen smart growth legislative proposals that have been introduced in the New York State Senate and Assembly. A discussion of the American Planning Association Growing Smart Legislative Guidebook is offered as a contrast to the approaches being discussed in the State. Part IV concludes with recommendations to preserve and protect New York’s natural resources and to encourage smart growth for economic and social development.

Keywords: smart growth, land use, zoning, regionalism, enabling acts, New York State, Quality Communities, APA, American Planning Association
