Chapter 8: Adapting agriculture through land use controls

Keith H Hirokawa


Especially in the context of agriculture and local land use, control strategies are critical considerations in a climate change response. At no other level of governance are considerations of home and community identity more pervasive. At no other level of governance are the felt necessities more personal. And at no other level of governance do the citizens feel more empowered. And yet, reliance on land use controls for resiliency purposes is a complicated task. The pervasive and perennial problems that confront local governments as they turn their attention to the impacts of climate change involve financial ability to implement a vision of resiliency, authority to act within a federalist system, and community commitment on an issue that retains enough political controversy to call into question the police power justification for action. Key Words: agriculture, local, zoning, land use, planning, community
