Most land use decisions always have been made, and will continue to be made at local and state levels, often by laymen who are not familiar with vital engineering considerations. This report on the South Florida local workshops is part of ASCE's ongoing effort to offer examples and suggestions for increased participation of civil engineers in land use planning and decision making. The local workshops can offer needed education, a forum for interaction with public officials involved in land use decisions, and a means of marshalling manpower and resources to help solve local problems. Financing, format and feedback from the local workshops are discussed in the article.
