  New Metropolis Lecture Series  
(Greater Washington DC Metro Area)

Jesse J. Richardson, Jr., an attorney and associate professor in Urban Affairs and Planning at Virginia Tech, will present "Local Government Land Use Autonomy: Myths and Realities About Building the New Metropolis," a discussion that will focus on the findings of his forthcoming
Brookings Institute report on measuring local government land use autonomy.


Debates on how to control sprawl often focus on whether state or local measures are necessary. Local governments bemoan a lack of authority to adequately control land use. This debate is especially spirited in Virginia, a state in which local governments view themselves as almost powerless. Dillon's Rule, a court rule used to interpret grants of authority from the state to the local government, is often blamed for powerless local governments.

Richardson's lecture will offer the first attempted measure of this authority and uncover some surprising findings.

The lecture will be made available on podcast following the event.
