Hey everyone, it's Sept. 17, and you know what that means: Constitution Day! (Seems like it just sneaks up on you every year, doesn't it?) Land use law intersects with so many constitutional issues: property rights, takings, religious land use, free speech, environmental regulation, police powers, federalism, housing policy, zoning, and so on. I often think of the land use field as the intersection of private property and public regulation, in the shadow of constitutional law.
So have a happy Constitution Day. Here is a page of Constitution Day Resources from the Library of Congress.
