velops into a hotel or an apartment-house district. This is frequently due to defective zoning, regulations or to frequent and lax zoning amendments, which permit easy changes from one use to another without due consideration of the actual needs of the community or the land-division conditions of the district. As various types of buildings require sizes and shapes of lots consistent with their own size and use, it is essential that zoning should take account of the lot divisions, so that use and site would bear some relation to each other. Conceiving a subdivision as an integrated entity, a great deal can be anticipated regarding future development, with due regard to such an entity, by careful consideration of all social, economic, and cultural requirements. The whole problem of land subdivision and the expansion of land uses is one which must be solved, not alone for the protection of the future purchasers of lots, but in the interest of the whole community, so that there will be no waste of needed open spaces, no extravagance in the extension of services, and no blight due to partial development.


SUMMARY

This somewhat lengthy discussion of the land problem as a factor in housing is by no means as complete as it might be. We have endeavored to focus the reader's attention on the character and peculiarities of land as a commodity, which determines land assessments, land values, land prices, and land use. That a great variety of controls are needed to bring land within the reach of low-cost housing is evident. It is my conviction that, in the long run, both owners and users of land would profit from such controls.
