Abstract

In 1973, Oregon adopted its Land Use Act. Florida adopted its Growth Management Acts during 1985 and 1986. Both Oregon and Florida aim to prevent urban sprawl, preserve farmland, improve accessibility, make transit a more viable option, reduce energy needs, and minimize tax burdens. Are they effective? Relative to a reasonably comparable state without growth management, Georgia, nearly all indicators developed in this study show that the growth-management efforts of Florida and Oregon are effective. Policy implications are offered.
