The Fall 2001 issue of the Planning Commissioners Journal includes:

* Zoning & Changing Lifestyles -- Michael Chandler & Greg Dale continue their overview of zoning with a look at the impact that changes in our society are having on local zoning regulation.

* What's So Bad About Zoning? -- PCJ columnist Ed McMahon provides a reality check on four myths about zoning & land use regulation (1. Zoning is un-American; 2. Sparsely populated rural areas don't need to control uses of land;

3. Land use controls will increase taxes and reduce property values; and 4. Planning is a bad idea).

* Developing a Sewer Ordinance: One Town's Experience -- Planner Kate Lampton reports on how one small but growing town put together a sewer allocation ordinance.

* Planning ABC's -- Planning historian Larry Gerckens starts our special Alphabet Book series with a look at: A is for Automobile; B is for Budget; and C is for Comprehensive Plan. With illustrations by Paul Hoffman.

* Planning Boards Survive a Decade of Change -- PCJ columnist Elaine Cogan reflects on ways in which planning has changed over the past ten years.
