The goal of this <br />effort is to assist local agencies in finding solutions to land and resource issues that appropriately balance <br />private and public interests in community and property. The project focuses primarily on an area of the law <br />known as "regulatory takings," but the project also addresses other issues that pose significant challenges <br />for public agencies. <br />The Community Land Use Project is developing a number of resources-such as this publication-that are <br />designed to help local officials implement their land use proglams. The project is grateful for the generous <br />support of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the League of California Cities.
