    Ryan on Zoning has been the definitive Pennsylvania zoning resource for 45 years! A comprehensive analysis of the large body of Pennsylvania zoning law governing litigation arising out of efforts of landowners to comply with, defeat, or avoid the primary type of American land use regulation—the local zoning ordinance.

    Two volumes contain statutory text and analysis, case law, discussion, procedure and forms on all aspects of zoning. The Pennsylvania Municipalities Code is reproduced in its entirety in the text, together with the authors’ valuable comments. Its impact is discussed in all relevant portions of the book.

    Attorneys, Planners, and Public Officials: For a practical, authoritative resource covering all Pennsylvania zoning issues, turn to Ryan—comprehensive, time-tested, up-to-date.
