Implementation methods must attack the core problem - the gap between community vision, general plan language and regulatory documents - at its source (unlike expensive stand alone land purchase programs, moratoria, or zoning changes). By correcting existing planning documents, a community anticipates and dissolves problems that could otherwise have affected future development and conservation efforts. For the first time, a community's comprehensive plan and regulatory policy support one another, allowing for a future that is created upon sustainable principles and reflects the picture of the future that residents envision.
