The problem of human settlement system (HSS) planning is formulated as a dynamic linear programming (DLP) problem. In DLP large time-dependent linear programming problems are solved using both optimal control and linear programming techniques. A multi-regional population growth model forms the state equation of the DLP problem. Budget-, resources- and quality of life constraints are considered. This introductory paper demonstrates the formalization of the HSS planning problem and indicates its solution, the realization of the solution and the interpretation of the dual relationship.
