Following up on my earlier ICMA post, I ran across this interesting effort by the Coastal Conservation League out of South Carolina to craft a development code for rural Dorchester County that codifies sustainable principles in a non-urban setting.
This has the potential to be a very important effort toward establishing a legal framework for sustainable "ruralism".
Considering that most of the jurisdictions in the U.S. are decidedly more rural than urban, the applicability of this type of regulation into other areas could be extensive.
