This chapter examines national trends in local open space preservation, focusing especially on how—or whether—these evolved during the environmental policy epochs described at the outset of this volume. Although local preservation can refer to the whole suite of land-use tools available to communities (land acquisition, conservation easements, growth limits, zoning, tax incentives), the chapter focuses on land or easement acquisitions.

Keywords:   open space preservation, environmental policy, environmental regulation, environmental protection, land use, easement acquisitions
