Post-industrial America : metropolitan decline & inter-regional job shifts by George Sternlieb( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metropolitan and regional economic and demographic shifts - now manifested in the stagnation or decline of America's old industrial region - pose consequences more far-reaching than the urban-suburban shifts which have heretofore claimed public attention. This collection of original essays examines why the focus of development is shifting away from older metropolitan regions and begins to mold policy in regard to a number of vexing issues: jobs and earnings, labor force characteristics, housing supplies, public expenditures, land use, tax delinquency and abandonment, and the struggle for racial equality. George Sternlieb and James W. Hugues have focused on three approaches to metropolitan change: examining the economic and demographic trendlines, analyzing the causes underlying the statistics, and considering the policy implications of stagnation or decline in our older cities."--Jacket

The new suburbanites : race and housing in the suburbs by Robert W Lake( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"National data indicates a surge in African-American suburbanization during the 1970s. What are the barriers that have slowed this process for so long? Is black entry to the suburbs synonymous with integration? To what extent does it contribute to convergence in the residential distributions of whites and blacks? This careful and thorough study marshals evidence that black suburbanization offers less than full realization of the American Dream.Homeownership in the United States is a source of security, a sign of status, a means of equity accumulation, and a bond to the community. The basic premise underlying The New Suburbanitesis the preeminence of equal access. Survey data collected for this analysis pertains to successful homebuyers - whites and blacks who were able to negotiate safely the treacherous housing market conditions.Specifically, Robert W. Lake draws from a unique survey of black and white homebuyers to assess the institutional and housing market barriers to black suburban homeownership. How does racial discrimination add to the cost, time, and difficulty of housing search for black homebuyers? What is the effect of discrimination on housing prices, resale value, and equity accumulation? What is behind the complexity of white and black attitudes to suburban racial integration? What is the perspective of the real estate agent, the key market intermediary? The book addresses each of these questions and concludes with a critique of present federal fair housing legislation and an assessment of policy implications."--Provided by publisher

Landmarks preservation and the property tax : assessing landmark buildings for real taxation purposes by David Listokin( Book )

6 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historic preservation is an issue of growing importance and public commitment. Federal and state mechanisms have been established to identify and support historic buildings/sites, while local governments have been active in supporting and protecting historic resources. Communities across the country have established designation programs whereby individual buildings or districts of historical-architectural significance are accorded landmark status. Designation activity has been accompanied by growing interest in other local incentives/disincentives to the support of historic buildings. In this regard, the property tax is viewed as either a possible powerful drawback to or a catalyst of preservation. This study examines the relationship between historic preservation and the property tax, focusing on the question of how designated buildings should be assessed for real taxation purposes. Listokin focuses on New York City in considering the effects of historic status on property value and in evaluating assessment practices. But this book's findings are transferable to other communities because the base conditions are similar. Many other cities have designation programs modeled on New York City's. In addition, New York's property-tax system and administrative processes resemble those found in communities across the nation. to enhance the transferability of this study's findings, Listokin refers to the national experience and literature, typically on a side-by-side basis with the New York City counterpart"--P.

Readings in urban analysis : perspectives on urban form and structure by Robert W Lake( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of urban analysis Robert W. Lake discusses focuses on the spatial structure of the city, its causes, and its consequences. At issue is the city as a spatial fact: a built environment with explicit characteristics and spatial dimensions, a spatial distribution of population and land uses, a nexus of locational decisions, an interconnected system of locational advantages and disadvantages, amenities and dis-amenities. Beginning with landmark articles in neo-classical and ecological theory, the reader covers the latest departures and developments. Separate sections cover political approaches to locational conflict, institutional influences on urban form, and recent Marxist approaches to urban analysis. Among the topics included are community strategies in locational conflict, the political economy of place, the role of government and the courts, institutional influences in the housing market, and the relationship between urban form and capitalist development. This is a valuable introductory text for courses in urban planning, urban geography, and urban sociology

Urbanization, water pollution, and public policy by Rutgers University( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewed in this report is a study concerned with water pollution as it relates to urbanization within the Regional Plan Association's set of 21 contiguous New York, New Jersey and Connecticut counties centered upon the numerous bay and estuarial reaches of the Port of New York and New Jersey. With a time frame covering a decade of water quality and pollution data, an attempt was made to devise projections for the next 15 years which might reveal how the urbanization process and the pollution process interact in the region. To implement this task, several stages of research were necessary, as described in the text: (1) development of a hydrologic data bank, (2) screening the data, (3) development of a projection model to estimate the impact on water of effluents associated with industrial growth and population growth, (4) construction of a computer model to simulate the behavior of a river system under the impact of urbanization, and (5) changing the model's premises in accordance with different sets of assumptions and regional growth policies to cast light on how best to alleviate pollution effects. This report concludes a two-part study, the first part of which was published under the title "Benefits From Integrated Water Management in Urban Areas--The Case of the New York Metropolitan Region."
