Abstract The Handbook provides 'how-to' information on techniques that local governments can implement to achieve community goals, preserve local natural resources, and protect the Chesapeake Bay. The Handbook complements the Beyond Sprawl video which highlights six land management techniques by demonstrating their effectiveness in model communities throughout the watershed. The video gives a brief overview of urban growth boundaries, infill development/community redevelopment, transit oriented development, transfer of development rights, cluster development, and traditional neighborhood development. The Handbook expands on these land management techniques by discussing their benefits to both the Chesapeake Bay and the local governments that utilize them. In addition, the Handbook identifies the steps local governments might take to implement the land management practices and tools described herein. Some details concerning the use of these techniques are further illustrated by successful local government models that demonstrate local application. Although many local governments share similar land management problems in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, not all the techniques described in this Handbook will be applicable to every community. However, the Handbook's techniques will help to challenge your community to develop its own means to address the impacts of sprawl growth and development patterns that are affecting communities and the Chesapeake Bay.
