The report is to be used as a handbook by local planning officials in planning for and regulating the use of five distinct natural areas: streams and creeks, wetlands, woodlands, hillsides, and groundwater and aquifer recharge areas. Each section is devoted to the discussion of local regulation of land use in areas identified as 'sensitive'; and each area is discussed in terms of its ecology and value to the public, current regulatory practices, and recommended programs for regulating the area. Also included are appendices showing where and how to go about getting technical assistance from existing governmental agencies and examples of local ordinances for protecting the environmentally sensitive areas. The final section is a monograph on environmental performance standards, the result of a preliminary study on the feasibility of extending the performance standard concept used in industry to regulation of the environment.
