Public Education for Growth Management: Lessons from Wisconsin’s Farmland Preservation Program

Public education plays an integral part in the implementation of effective local government-based land use programs. Educators must conduct analyses of their target communities to adapt the education programs to the specific needs and perceptions of each community. Moreover, they should emphasize the local elements of control in the implementation of land use policies. An example of a successful public education program on land use conducted by the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension is presented.
