  • Question 1: Considering Ch. 1 of Landscape Planning and Ch. 2 of Contemporary Urban Planning, discuss how planning and land use have been influenced by the physiography of the United States. In particular, consider the following:
    • Areas with steady urban growth (for example, the New England states)
    • Areas with low urban growth (for example, the upper Midwest)
    • Areas that have experienced changes in growth (for example, Nevada or parts of North or South Carolina)
  • Question 2: Considering Ch. 1 of Landscape Planning and Ch. 6–7 of Contemporary Urban Planning, what role does the sociopolitical environment play in sustainable planning? Consider the following:
    • The historical role of presidential policies (for example, the availability of low-interest mortgage loans to the public)
    • Urbanization booms caused by specific industries (for example, the California Gold Rush or the North Dakota surge in fossil fuels production)
    • The advent of more efficient resource extraction methods (for example, “fracking”)
  • Question 3: Considering Ch. 3 & 4 of Landscape Planning: Environmental Application, what role does landscape form and topography play in sustainable planning? Consider the following:
    • Areas with a flat topography (for example, the Midwestern United States)
    • Areas with a moderate topography and landscape form (for example, Missouri, Indiana, or Ohio)
    • Areas with definite mountain areas (for example, the Pacific Northwest) or areas close to mountain systems (for example, the Appalachians)
