The SNRE Program in Land Use

Florida is a bellwether growth state, with its population projected to grow by
11.5 million over the next 25 years, doubling by 2050, and soon becoming
the third largest state in the nation. This unprecedented growth is occurring
in the middle of hurricane alley, where 80 percent of the population lives
within 50 miles of a coastline. SNRE decided to make its top priority the
creation of a Land Use Dynamics program, based on the premise that how
land is occupied is the single most important determinant of sustainability.

Perspectives


Programs Show Strong Growth

We are pleased to report on our progress in developing programs related to
land use dynamics in Florida. We have partnered with New College of
Florida in the proposed creation of a land use institute and have created an
interdisciplinary faculty work group on-campus to help us design a new
Land Use Dynamics program. Another major effort has reached completion
since the first newsletter. SNRE has finalized its first strategic plan, the
"SNRE Action Plan for 2006-2011."
