In Iowa, land use planning is typically delegated to counties and municipalities, though the [[Iowa City Development Board]] oversees land use planning in general. In Iowa, land use decisions should support the following sustainable community principles:
*Mixed land uses;
*Compact building design;
*Creating housing opportunities and choices;
*Creating walkable communities;
*Fostering distinctive, attractive communities;
*Preserving open space, farmland, natural beauty, and critical environmental areas;
*Strengthening and directing development toward existing communities;
*Providing a variety of transportation choices;
*Making development decisions predictable, fair and cost-effective; and
*Encouraging community and stakeholder collaboration in development decisions.

Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==1-IA-a.1 – Initiate Transmission Siting Process==
Despite the land use planning done by other entities, the [[Iowa Utilities Board]] has jurisdiction over all electric transmission siting within the state. [[Iowa – Iowa Code §§ 474 et seq., Utilities Division | Iowa Code § 474]]; [[Iowa – Iowa Code §§ 478 et seq., Electric Transmission Lines | Iowa Code § 478]]. Transmission lines capable of carrying a voltage of 69kV or higher must have an Electric Transmission Line Franchise in order to be constructed or operated. [[Iowa – Iowa Code §§ 478 et seq., Electric Transmission Lines | I.C. § 478.1(1)]]. Transmission lines below this voltage capacity do not require such franchises, but the Utility Board still retains jurisdiction over those lines, including siting. [[Iowa – Iowa Code §§ 478 et seq., Electric Transmission Lines | I.C. § 478.1(2)]]. For more information see:
