Abstract

Washington State's Growth Management Act provides an effective means to guide growth but the state has had land management problems arising from pre-existing subdivision plans ("platted lands"). However, there are several steps available to deal with the potential land use conflicts arising from these undeveloped subdivisions. These steps and the lessons from Washington state are applicable to any country, state, or municipality facing a change in land subdivision law or dealing with historical matters of vested rights.
