The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: What Planners Can Learn from Yellowstone
The hit TV series Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders – land developers that make billions, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park. The session will do a deep dive into several planning topics that play an intricate role in the plot line of the series: changing zoning to protect the ranch; riparian water rights; eminent domain to build an airport; Indian reservation casino development; land use planning from the Governor’s office, and more.
