Environmental Regulations and Housing Costs by Arthur C Nelson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Many communities across the US still lack affordable housing. And many officials continue to claim that `affordable housing' is an oxymoron. Building inexpensively is impossible, they say, because there are too many regulations. Required environmental impact statements and habitat protection laws, they contend, drive up the costs of construction. But is this actually true? In a comprehensive study of the question, the authors of this eye-opening book separate fact from myth.
