Urban Law Annual
In the sections of the Article to follow I will first flesh out the three models of planning implementation mentioned above and discuss briefly their unique legal problems. Second, I will identify the studies which suggest more basic reasons why plans are not easily linked to decisionmaking in the United States or elsewhere. Third, I will identify remedial and preventive legal approaches to securing a closer linkage between planning and implementation. In the final section, I will discuss the implications of my conclusions for the rationality of public decisions within the welfare state.
