Goal Programing in Land-Use Planning
Abstract:The land-use planning process on the Mount Hood National Forest involves nine steps designed to identify needs, determine the complex interaction of effects from fulfilling these needs, and providing a means by which decisionmakers can see the tradeoffs required to achieve the various levels of need satisfaction. Goal programming, a variation of linear programming, has been experimentally used to assist in this process.
