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 708 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

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

7 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in English and held by 438 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 408 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 346 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."

The high-tech potential : economic development in rural America by Amy Glasmeier( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rural America is at a crossroads in its economic development. Like regions of other First World nations, the traditional economic base of rural communities in the United States is rapidly deteriorating. Natural resources, including agriculture, show little prospect for generating future job growth, and manufacturing has become a new source of instability. Faced with these changes and an increasing vulnerability to international economic events, rural communities have begun to seek high-technology industries and advanced services as candidates for job growth and economic stability. What is the potential for high-tech growth outside the largest cities? What is the role of high-tech industry in the economic development of non-metropolitan America? This book provides a hard-nosed look at the high-tech potential in rural economic development. Some of the questions Glasmeier addresses include: Are rural areas attractive to high tech? Will high tech follow earlier patterns and filter down the lowest-paid jobs to rural areas? Will rural communities be bypassed completely for even lower-wage Third World locations? Glasmeier answers in a sober analysis that separates fact from myth. Empirical data reveals the kinds of high-tech jobs that locate in rural areas, and the kinds of rural areas that attract high-tech jobs. This analysis leads to a highly critical evaluation of state and local economic development policy and recommendations for its improvement. This book is a must for policymakers, practitioners, scholars, and an informed public interested in the promise of high tech and the future of US economic development."--Provided by publisher
