Exploring Private Land and Water Rights
THE 1993 FLEMING SYMPOSIUM
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15, and TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1993

As the struggle escalates over the regulation of private land and water rights, it is timely to explore the role of the individual and the community in the government's considerations The Fleming Symposium seeks to bring together spokespersons from the various constituencies to represent the broad spectrum of opinion and thought on such complex questions as: Is there an ethical basis for the public regulation of land and water rights that adds to community values? Should land owners be compensated for the full value of their land when regulators rule it cannot be used for the "best possible use"? In the process of fully exploring this complex topic, the symposium will bring into focus the role of legitimate government regulation in providing for the civilized life. Speakers have been selected from academia, business, government, and environmental organizations to represent a broad spectrum of opinions and thoughts on these issues.
