Abstract:
In October, 1979, the North Carolina Supreme Court handed down a decision on one of the most significant land-use planning cases in the State. Among the planning-law issues to be decided by the Court in A-S-P Associates versus Raleigh were the validity of historic district zoning, contextual standards for administrative issuance of permits, spot-zoning, validity of overlapping zoning districts, and the comprehensive-plan requirement. The decision represented a major victory for the historic preservation movement in the State, as North Carolina became the first southeastern state to affirm the constitutional validity of historic preservation.

Abstract:
The current land reform movement in the U.S. seeks not only to change and control land use, but further to change and control ownership patterns. The economics of land ownership determines in part its use--whether the land is farmed or developed--and determines to a large extent who is wealthy and who is poor. A suggested reform to this movement is the establishment of community land trusts that remove parcels of land from the free market and placing them on a stewardship for a larger common good.
