Glossary of Land Use and Planning Terms

Glossary of Land Use and Planning Terms

As local officials know, land use policy frequently involves technical terminology and a host of acronyms. To assist with this challenge, the Glossary of Land Use and Planning Terms provides a ready reference for local officials.

The glossary includes materials relating to emerging issues in land use planning, including climate change and the health implications of land use decisions.

This resource would not be possible without the generous support of the California State Association of Counties and the League of California Cities, as well as the project’s sponsors:

  • Best, Best and Krieger
  • Burke, Williams and Sorensen
  • Hanson Bridgett
  • Kronick, Moskovitz, Tiedemann and Girard
  • Meyers Nave
  • Richards, Watson and Gershon

These sponsors share the Institute’s commitment to providing decision-makers with solid information to enhance local land use decision-making.
