I've already blogged about the ALPS conference in general, but I want to make sure that all of the land use-related papers from Day 2 get mentioned here, because if you are interested, you should keep your eyes out for the publications.
Jeffrey Jones: Four Property Wrongs of Self-Storage Law
Bela August Walker: Zoning In: State Power & the Siting of Drug Rehabilitation Clinics
Asmara Tekle: Greening the Lawn in Law: Lawns and Waterways. I was glad to hear this paper not only as a fellow Houstonian, but also because during the Q&A we were treated to the most eloquent description of what I am hereby officially calling the "Clowney Theory of the Gendered American Lawn." This is a family-friendly blog, so you'll have to ask Steve for the precise articulation.
Antonia Layard: Public/private use of Property
Tanya Marsh: Regulating God's Acre: Custom, Commerce, and Choice in the American Cemetery
Nick Hopkins & Susan Bright: Evaluating Legal Models of Affordable Home Ownership in England
Magdalena Habdas: Who needs a park or a city square? The notion of public real estate as a res publicae
Troy Rule: Renewable Energy and the Neighbors
Ngai Pindell: Climate Change and Affordable Housing
Will Cook: Smart Growth and the Preservation of Historic Resources
It was great to see everyone there, and we especially wish safe travels to those who came to AALS from abroad.
