Recognizing the inflexibility inherent in present zoning mechanisms, this comment analyzes the concept of nuisance as an additional, more versatile means of land use control. In an exhaustive categorization and evaluation of Washington cases and those from other jurisdictions, the author sets forth the principles of nuisance law and the factors affecting court decisions on nuisance. Both private and public actionable nuisances are discussed, along with available remedies, within a concise analytical framework.
