In June 2002, the Office of Environmental Justice at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asked the Standing Panel on Social Equity of the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) to study the relationship between environmental justice and local land use planning and zoning. This study complements the Academy's two previous environmental justice studies. The first study focused on EPA's programs for issuing air, water, and waste permits; and the second examined various state models for addressing environmental justice, with a particular focus on the permitting function. The current study focuses on how local government decisions on land use planning and zoning have-or have not-been used to address environmental justice issues in five selected communities where concerns about inequities have been raised.
