It's the end of the year, and that means it's time to choose the biggest land use event and land use law case of 2013.
My bet for the biggest land use story of the year is China's staggering project to relocate 250 million people from rural villages to cities in the next 15 years. Check out the NYT article here.
The biggest land use law case of the year? Judging from the buzz, I'm going with Koontz.
How about you, dear readers? What would you name as the biggest land use event and land use law case of the year? We want to hear from you!
