Subdividing rural America : impacts of recreational lot and second home development by American Society of Planning Officials( Book )

12 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recreational land development in the United States falls into three general categories with the first two being more popular: (1) unimproved recreational subdivisions, largely speculative investments; (2) improved second home projects, used both for recreation and speculation; and (3) high amenity resort communities, recreational areas for higher income families. At least 10 million recreational lots currently exist, mostly in Florida and Texas, but also in Pennsylvania and the Southwest. Recreational land development is a controversial topic as it has implications for environmental, economic, and social impact. Environmentally sensitive areas are often targets for development projects, which can produce air and water pollution, erosion, and solid waste problems. While development projects initially stimulate local economies via taxation, the effect may reverse itself in later years. The culture and lifestyle of a rural area may change with an influx of sophistication, bringing with it increased crime, traffic, and crowding. Consumer victimization by fraudulent land development companies is all too frequent. Local and state governments should take advantage of the current lull in recreational land development to pass legislation and establish procedures and regulations regarding such development. (Sb)

Links to the future : the role of information and telecommunications : technology in Appalachian economic development by Michael Oden( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the status of information, computing, and telecommunications (ict) technologies in the Appalachian region, assessing their potential relationship to economic growth and the federal, state, and local policies that influence their development. Key findings include the following. Leading producers of ict products and services have a relatively weak presence in Appalachia. Substantial infrastructure deficiencies exist in rural Appalachia. Rural Appalachia is highly dependent on incumbent telephone companies for high-speed services and basic telecommunications infrastructure. Competition can produce improved services at better prices. Federal E-rate and various state programs have enabled widespread high-speed connectivity among schools and libraries in Appalachia. However, Appalachian counties have received significantly lower per-capita funding of E-rate and rural health programs than the nation as a whole. Lack of information combined with access barriers limit the effective adoption of ict and network services across Appalachia. Dissemination of information regarding ict hardware, software and connectivity integration is under-supplied by the market, especially in rural areas. Ict access and capacity barriers disadvantage economic development in rural Appalachian counties. Limited ict access and use was found to be a particular problem for the health care sector in rural communities. Appalachian states have adopted a range of policies to enhance access to telecommunications infrastructure in rural areas. Case studies in Mississippi and Virginia underscored the significance of the broader economic and demographic context for the relationship between telecommunications and economic development. Policy options are offered. Seven appendices present study information. (Contains 87 references.) (Td)

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was commissioned by the Appalachian Regional Commission in order to compile standardized, baseline information regarding health disparities in the region. Health disparities result from differences in the incidence, prevalence, mortality, and burden of diseases and other adverse health conditions that exist among specific population groups. This study provides baseline information needed to assess health disparities in the region, to investigate causes of regional and local disparities, and to aid in developing targeted interventions aimed at reducing disparities and improve the overall health of the region
