In Japan, a local city such as Nagaoka has been developed in the suburban area and the rural area. Meanwhile, the local city's central area has declined. Therefore, we study how to vitalize central area and to control land use in suburban area. For instance, we examined the method of designating new City Planning Area in the local city which had never had an effective land use control system. There were the technical and practical problems, so we cooperated with the municipal officers and discussed those problems with them.
