EDITOR'S NOTE: November Surprise

The article argues that supporters of land-use planning in six Western states had better tell their stories now if they want to have a chance in November 2006. Some of the visionary land-use regulations in the U.S. have been rendered powerless because of the approval of Measure 37, the mother of all takings initiatives, in Colorado in 2004. This telling defeat of the supporters of land-use planning offers many lessons such as the fact that planners had stopped listening to the people.
