The report reviews the application and potential of the police power at the local level of government as it is used to achieve environmental planning objectives. The first section presents an overview of the interactions of various municipal regulations and ordinances as they affect the environment. Subsequent sections examine the potential of conventional, locally available, legal tools to affect residuals production--these include transportation and parking ordinances, building codes, on-site wastewater management and maintenance permits, stormwater management ordinances, noise control ordinances, solid waste ordinances, and subdivision permit procedures. In each section, examples of successful or model ordinances are supplied, preceded by a discussion of the technical issues involved in associated environmental programs. The last section of the report is a two-part appendix that elaborates on the impacts of various commonly used ordinances on individual factors of environmental quality; it serves as an extension of the overview presented in the first section.
