This course explores how the state’s system of local governance influences environmental policy and land use planning. We will investigate the dynamic relationships between cities, counties and special purpose districts as they struggle to deliver critical programs and services. We will examine the history and implementation of the Shoreline Management Act and the Growth Management Act – and examine their impact on community development across the state. This course will be of value to students who wish to understand how Washington State’s unique local governance system operates and how environmental and land use policy is implemented.
