Distribution of Land Use Acreage/Percentages


Does anyone know what the recommended percentages are for each type of land use (commercial, industrial, etc.) and what the source of that information might be? Or... where I might find this type of information on a web site?

[I realize there was a post a couple months ago about commercial land per 1000 people, but I'm looking for information a little faster for our Commissioners. I don't have time to find the books to get them an answer.]

Thanks for your help!
