Whose West is it?

  Developers, planners, attorneys and conservationists will talk about urban and rural land development at the sixth annual conference on land use, sponsored by the Denver-based Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute, March 13-14. High Country News publisher Ed Marston will debate what's happening to the economy and culture of the New West with William Perry Pendley, president of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, and Thomas Michael Power, chair of the economics department at the University of Montana. More than 30 other sessions will tackle a range of issues, including the impact of resort growth, development megatrends, and sustainable communities in the West.
