This article is an edited version of Professor Ziegler's presentation which provides an outsider's perspective on the current issues facing Illinois land use law. From this perspective, Professor Ziegler examines the adequacy of Illinois regulatory authority, addresses the role of judicial review in the context of zoning decisions, and analyzes the need for planning. Professor Ziegler concludes that better utilization of regulatory authority and an emphasis on planning would provide a better framework for local communities to have zoning classifications sustained on review.
