Most often, land use law helps shape residential and commercial development. But other times, major decisions in development will shape what kind of land use law regime a community must consider. On “No Name Key” in the chain of islands in far southern Florida, the community is facing the prospect of joining its fellow keys on the electric power grid—something that many residents have resisted in the past. While some cherish the island’s isolation from the complications that electricity brings, other residents want power to facilitate life on the island, which is just off U.S. Highway 1, which connects the lower keys with the rest of the United States. But once electricity comes, won’t greater development, including winter homes, more asphalt—and, eventually, the need for stricter zoning and land use laws—come with it?
