Lewyn on Municipal Comprehensive Plans

MtMichael Lewyn (Touro) has posted Zoning and Land Use Planning: Plans are Not Enough (Real Estate L.J.) on SSRN.  Here's the abstract:

Some commentators describe comprehensive land use planning as a potential remedy for suburban sprawl. But in fact, states that require municipal comprehensive plans can be just as automobile-oriented as more permissive states. Why is this the case? Because like zoning codes, municipal comprehensive plans often favor low-density single-use development, wide streets and other factors that encourage automobile-dependent development.
