Christopher Serkin makes an excellent point, with major beneficial ramifications for considerations of environmental protection. Take, for instance, landscape preservation. If a landscape for protection has incurred inconsistent existing uses, can those existing uses be removed? The Serkin analysis includes existing land uses in the same protective framework as prospective future land uses and permits appropriate processes for their assessment.

The Serkin approach points out the importance of the soundness of the public processes for the assessment of existing and prospective future land uses. For such a public process for landscape preservation, see http://www.democracyservices.com/7701/9222.html
