During the past year, state courts have decided a significant number of cases involving the role of the comprehensive plan. By comparison, few, if any, court decisions have been rendered which involved significant growth management issues other than the legal status of the comprehensive plan. Accordingly, this report focuses on the continuing evolution of the role of the comprehensive plan.
