I'd like to take this opportunity to spotlight the University of Louisville's Center for Land Use and Environmental Responsibility. The Center has a threefold mission:
- to support and engage in academic research on land use and environmental problems in society;
- to engage in public service that brings cutting-edge research, knowledge, and ideas to the benefit of the public, government agencies, community groups, professional organizations, and others with the goal of improving land use practices; and
- to organize or sponsor interdisciplinary educational programs, such as lectures, conferences, workshops, symposia, and other educational endeavors, that are of benefit to the University community, experts and the public in the Louisville Metro region and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and experts nationally and internationally.
The Center is headed by the Law School's own Tony Arnold. In connection with his work at the Center and as the holder of the Boehl Chair in Property and Land Use, Tony writes a blog called Mapping the Landscape: Resources on Land Use & the Environment. Tony is merely one of many contributors to the consolidated University of Louisville Law Faculty Blog.
