The rapid urbanization of large areas of Washington call for effective land use planning and zoning. At present, regional and state land use plans are implemented, if at all, only by the grace of local zoning officials. This comment discusses the means available for adjusting the relationships between local zoning officials and extra-municipal planners so as to preserve local autonomy without destroying the effectiveness of state and regional plans. The authors conclude that the adoption of portions of the Model Land Development Code would accomplish this result.
