This study focuses on the changing awareness and current practices in promoting environmental quality through urban planning and controls in local and metropolitan planning agencies. It reviews the mainstream and cutting edge practices and orientations of the 1960's. The study then reviews the more promising and innovative approaches in four sectors of planning activity that are related to environmental quality: land use and comprehensive planning, planning and controls for the water resources-land use interface; urban design and controls; and residuals management (limited to noise and air quality. Based on the review of mainstream and cutting edge practices and attitudes, the summary chapter integrates recommendations within a proposed guidance system approach for local and metropolitan agencies.
