Urban Sprawl and Cityscapes
81,30 € *

Urban Sprawl and Cityscapes is a comparative case study focusing on the cities of Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario answering several research questions. What specific policy choices are available to municipalities to control urban sprawl? Which public policies have been most successful in controlling urban growth? Discussion focuses on both state and provincial land use goals to control urban sprawl, however, the underlying foundation to manage urban growth depends on a local sense of community and opportunities to rationalize common interests. The dream of both Americans and Canadians is a private estate home in suburbia. The key issues for sprawling suburbs are congested roadways and the need to provide quality water and sewer infrastructure. Cities struggle with school systems that are underfunded and face a heavy tax burden to repair aging infrastructure. Urban policies must be focused on enhancing the quality of life for the whole metropolitan region. Older inner city communities cannot be left behind while tax dollars from senior levels of government pay for problems associate with urban sprawl.

(Re)Building Healthy Communities

Revision with unchanged content. The recent trend of urban sprawl in the United States has resulted in a demand for alternatives. Long commutes and automobile centered lifestyles leave less time to exercise, increase air pollution, and decrease human interaction, a key aspect of mental health. One potential solution to sprawl is an urban planning model called "Smart Growth," which combines the aspects of dense residential construction, public transportation, and multi-use neighborhoods where residents can work, shop, and go to school all within walking distance of their homes. Although Smart Growth is often touted as a solution to the negative effects of urban sprawl, qualitative and quantitative research results suggest that there are also potential negative consequences that accompany urban renewal. This book examines the impact of urban renewal on individual health, specifically focusing on one community in Portland, Oregon. While considering issues such as displacement and social capital, this book seeks to answer two questions: Can Portland effectively use a market driven urban renewal model to improve health? And if so, are the health benefits provided by Smart Growth accessible to all in the community?

Democracy, Consultation and Socio-Environmental...
81,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The use of community consultation to address socio-environmental degradation is entwined with contested democratic principles polarising views of its role. Three democratic paradigms are at issue. Conceiving consultation as deliberative reconciles the liberal view of consultation as the illegitimate elevation of minority groups with the participationist view that consultation constitutes a step towards participatory democracy. A deliberative conception of the role of community consultation over socio-environmental degradation nonetheless confronts the problem of functional differentiation that renders legal, political, techno-scientific and administrative domains increasingly self referential and unaccountable. This problematic is illustrated with the case of Western Sydney s urban sprawl into the Hawkesbury Nepean River Catchment in the Australian State of New South Wales. This sprawl arose from economic growth underwritten by the New South Wales State. The consultative provisions of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (1979) failed to resolve the contestation that environmental degradation of this region provoked.

From Urban Sprawl to Compact City
70,00 € *

Future urban growth strategies, at the regional, district and community levels, represent a decisive break from traditional predict and provide patterns of development. Plans for Auckland's urban future follow a theoretical debate over the virtues of urban sprawl and compact city types of development which has dominated urban planning literature over the past 15 years, as overall Auckland's strategies look to move away from sprawl as the basis for urban growth and focus more on intensification. However, as is outlined in the literature, there are many critiques of the compact city thesis, and those critiques can be readily applied to Auckland, especially with regards to feasibility and acceptability problems that have already plagued the implementation of intensification, as higher-density urban living contradicts with what most New Zealanders perceive to be an ideal lifestyle.
