Contents Notes Regional growth management is largely addressed at the local and state levels, driven by a myriad of concerns. Many of these concerns are associated with the concept of sprawl, and pit expansion of suburban development against protection of open space, agricultural activities, and amenity values. Local and state policies to respond to these concerns are also diverse. Many federal activities, policies, and programs affect rates and patterns of growth, and the ability of local and state governments to address them. Periodically, the question arises as to whether Congress should examine how current federal activities affect growth, recognizing that a plethora of federal actions affect development decisions, and that there is no way to totally eliminate the effects of these actions. Congress has many policy options that could support local and state efforts to respond to growth management concerns, including: providing information; providing financial and other assistance; using disincentives to discourage undesirable activity; and regulation. Any initiatives Congress might decide to take in this area would likely generate lively debate. This report will be updated as events warrant.
