I am a student working on my Masters degree in city planning. I am taking a class on planning research methods. Our assignment is to formulate a research question about something related to planning.

I am interested in Growth Management Policies and would like to create a research question on the topic or maybe even a thesis. But I first need to understand GM policies and the issues they raise.

I was wondering if anyone here could tell me some issues/problems that Growth Management policies are creating, or how GM policies are affecting cities vs cities that do not have GM policies.

Thank you very much for any help.
