Periodic Land Use Studies for More Effective Planning
A good many land use studies have been made since 1920. In most cases no specific constructive planning has followed and year by year the value of their results decreases because of changes in land utilization, ownership, etc. In even those few cases where action has been taken new problems crop up requiring readjustments in the plan. Planning activity would be greatly stimulated if the conclusions arrived at in the original studies could be tested, and definite trends in ownership, etc., established by means of periodic investigations. The results of the re-survey of Menominee County, Michigan are presented as an example of how practicable and economical follow-up studies can be.
