    Description

    There are many efforts to preserve open space from urban development in and around the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. Some involve public acquisition of a landowner's use rights, either acquiring fee title or encumbering the land with an easement, while others involve public restriction on how a landowner may exercise the use rights. This paper asks, "How should we think of these efforts - in terms of our democratic institutions and in terms of past and future urban growth?"
