Land use planning links

When adding a link, please format it like one of the existing ones, write a brief review, and put it in alphabetical order. Please also add your signature and time stamp, via --~~~~ (two dashes and four tildes), which will automatically expand to your name and timestamp. Contact Jan Steinman for help if needed.
