    Try this thread - it is usually fertile ground when conventional professional wisdom is challenged by common sense.

    Otherwise - hello and welcome. You should go to the "Introduce Yourself" thread and give us a full run down.

    Welcome.

    Urban land use and growth are broad topics. Can you be a little more specific?

    Urban Land Use + Growth = Brownfield Redevelopment

    Just throwing that one out there. Of course I'm not sure if you are talking about New Growth or Redevelopment.

    What about Urban Growth Boundaries??

    WHat about the land use difficulties of landlocked communities? For instance, cities often have problems identifying sites suitable for manufacturing, due to high redevelopment costs, brownfield issues, and difficult land assembly.
