Abstract : Prior to the decision to locate a facility in the area, many communities lacked subdivision, zoning, or building code requirements. Others had growth management tools available but did not fully enforce requirements. In part, this attitude reflected the belief that as long as new development was slow and construction was undertaken by local residents, tight regulations were not necessary. However, once community leaders became actively involved in explaining the likely scope of project-induced growth, the public response to the application and enforcement of growth management became positive. The initial concern that growth management might restrict growth was addressed. In fact, careful growth management techniques to guide development generally overcame rural opposition to land use measures. Further, private project sponsors often insisted on land use measures. Further, private project sponsors often insisted on land use regulations as a means to protect their investment and enhance the value of their property.
