Residential Land Use Policy and Conservation Development in the Blanco River Basin
Ellis, Ronald L.
The purpose of this research has two parts. The first is to evaluate the compatibility of residential land use policies in the Blanco River Basin with conservation development. The second is to identify, through open-ended interviews, policy alternatives that may be useful to accomplish conservation development in the Blanco River Basin. The research methods included document analysis of residential land use policies of the cities and counties that govern most of the Blanco River Basin and personal interviews with planners and developers who have expertise in conservation development planning. The findings indicate that residential land use policies in the Blanco River basin are generally incompatible with conservation development, but that alternative policy methods exist that may be able to permit its practice.
