ZONING’S CENTENNIAL, PART 2: A SERIES BY JOHN R. NOLON

See below for Part 2 of John Nolon’s series discussing the evolution of zoning and land use law during its first century. Part 2 explains the devolution of legal authority to local governments to adopt and enforce land use laws. According to Professor Nolon, the federal government, which has limited power to control land use, played a critical role in zoning’s rapid spread during the 1920s using an effective strategy for influencing local land use that should guide its actions today. The second post in the series can be found here:  http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/land_use/2016/01/index.html
