Article Title

Land Use Planning


The author initially examines the traditional judicial treatment given master plans. Recent trends indicating a shift in the traditional view are explored and the author contends that Florida's Local Government comprehensive Planning Act of 1975 is at the forefront of these new trends. After discussing in depth the Act's provisions, the author concludes that the success or failure of the Act rides on the courts'interpretationso f the "consistency" provisions, and strongly advocates a broad interpretation.
