Nalyzing the relatoinship between group agents and local land use planning about resource land protection

Applying political ecology as an ontology framework look at land use land cover change in unincorporated Census Designated Places (CDPs) and the relationship between political ecology and localized land use and land cover change. Must mention that CDPs that have more resource land including forest and agricultural land are facing more development pressure, assuming that current participation in sectoral community planning is not effective.

Employing structuration theory as an epistomological approach analyze how group agents such as civic association in the unincoporated CDPs are involved into local land use planning. In addition, whether these group agents are representative of socioeconomic well-being of unincoporated places, particularly, in Montgomery, Prince Georges, Frederick, and Charles county in the state of Maryland possible a diagram for this part.

A discourse analysis on Montgomery, Prince Georges, Frederick, Charles countys comprehensive plan in terms of how county planners have been making effort to balance growth and environmental protection.
