Title Growth and change Florida style: 1970 to 2000
Date 2007-01-01
Description In response to development patterns leading to what may be termed "urban sprawl," several local, regional, and state governments in the United States have embarked on growth management or urban containment strategies. These strategies typically aim to synchronize key public facilities with urban development pressures, preserve open spaces, and facilitate development in ways that preserve public goods, minimize public costs, and account for development impacts by those who cause them (Nelson and Dawkins, 2002; Nelson and Duncan, 1995). We refer the reader to Nelson and Dawkins (2002) for a review of how growth management and urban containment work and how they vary in application across the United States. One of the cornerstones of urban containment is limiting development beyond an urban containment boundary such as an urban growth boundary, urban service limit, or (in the UK) urban growth stopline (see Easley, 1992). Development is restricted in one of two principal ways. First and foremost in all containment schemes is preventing the extension of urban facilities into the rural countryside, especially wastewater treatment provided via sanitary sewers. This restriction is sometimes but not always extended to public water systems.
