La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 1993

La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

A pesar de la importancia creciente que ha ido adquiriendo el tema ambiental, su avance teórico en relación con la ciudad es insuficiente; al extremo de que aún no se ha logrado construir un marco conceptual que establezca las respectivas mediaciones y relaciones con lo urbano, la planificación y la gestión. No hay una visión integrada o cuando menos integradora; de allí que en este mundo de dicotomías, el maniqueísmo tienda a salir a flote: mientras lo natural, lo rural, el campo son lo bueno, lo artificial, lo urbano, la ciudad son lo malo. En este contexto se ha satanizado ...

The Greenfield Versus Brownfield Debate: A Balanced Approach To Industrial Planning, John R. Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Maureen Moriarty Jul 1993

The Greenfield Versus Brownfield Debate: A Balanced Approach To Industrial Planning, John R. Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Maureen Moriarty

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

Across the United States, mill towns and industrial communities, the "brownfields", have been experiencing rapid disinvestment as manufacturing and service firms increasingly move to suburban industrial parks, the "greenfields". This locational trend has been intensified over the years by our policies and regulations for industrial development. Is this shifting balance a desired result of our policies? The authors believe this trend has had negative effects on both the center cities left behind, as well as on the communities which are being developed. Analysis of the "Greenfield-Brownfield" debate can assist economic development planners in promoting balanced industrial growth. This article analyzes ...

Cultural Corridor: A Preservation District In Downtown Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Augusto Ivan Pinheiro, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

This paper concerns the first large-scale urban-design project in Brazil to deal with preservation and revitalization in the inner city. In protecting the cultural heritage while still encouraging new construction, the project has been successful in setting a new methodology for development control and in reinforcing the traditional character of a large area of downtown Rio de Janeiro. Within the framework of an overall design-review process, the project has made use of special land-use regulations, design guidelines, participatory and educational programs, and substantial tax deductions. Traditional architectural patterns and uses have been reinforced, and development pressure from large corporations has ...


Quito: Una Experiencia De Gestión Urbana (1988-1992), Fernando Carrión Mena Mar 1993

Quito: Una Experiencia De Gestión Urbana (1988-1992), Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Este trabajo pretende mostrar algunas de las ideas fuerza que guiaron la propuesta del Distrito Metropolitano de Quito de la Administración Municipal 1988-92, a través de lo que la Dirección de Planificación desarrolló. Son criterios generales, que culminan con la formulación de una propuesta de gestión, del proyecto de Ley de constitución del Distrito Metropolitano de Quito (DMQ), y del respectivo Plan de Desarrollo Metropolitano.

La reflexión realizada proviene de la experiencia desde adentro, como copartícipe del proceso. Esto si bien tiene su propia riqueza, no es menos cierto que carece de la distancia tan necesaria para la objetividad. También ...


"Indirect Regulation" Of Environmental Hazards Through The Provision Of Information To The Public: The Case Of Sara, Title Iii, Richard C. Rich, W. David Conn, William L. Owens Mar 1993

"Indirect Regulation" Of Environmental Hazards Through The Provision Of Information To The Public: The Case Of Sara, Title Iii, Richard C. Rich, W. David Conn, William L. Owens

City and Regional Planning

Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 seeks to reduce the risks of chemical accidents through a strategy of indirect regulation that relies on providing the public with information about chemical hazards. For this strategy to be effective, citizens must aggressively utilize the information provided to monitor industrial practices and press for risk reduction. Since prior research suggests it is very difficult to evoke the degree of citizen action that would be required to make a strategy of indirect regulation successful, and since the federal legislation provided no funds for implementation, there is a question o ...

De La Violencia Urbana A La Convivencia Ciudadana, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1993

De La Violencia Urbana A La Convivencia Ciudadana, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La novedad del tema y su importancia. No se puede desconocer que el problema de la violencia delictual, como fenómeno social que tiene expresión en las ciudades, existe desde tiempos inmemoriales y que, por tanto, no es nuevo, al grado de que se podría decir que es consustancial a la ciudad. Tal afirmación debe conducir a replaD~ar la tradicional aproximación que se ha hecho al tema y a lo urbano, desde aquellas metodologías que los interpretan como resultado de un conjunto de entidades patológicas.

Por ello quizás sería mejor reconocer a la ciudad como un escenario de relaciones sociales ...


La Cuestión Urbana De Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1993

La Cuestión Urbana De Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En 1962 Quito tenía 335 mil habitantes y un área de 2.525 Has. Para •1990 Quito arrojó una población de 1.095.000 y un área urbana superior a las 19 mil has. Estas cifras revelan cambios no solo en el orden cuantitativo, sino también la presencia de una ciudad cualitativamente distinta inscrita en el mismo contexto urbano.

Este gran proceso de cambio pretendió ser acompañado por instrumentos legales ejecutados desde la municipalidad; sin embargo, todos ellos quedaron obsoletos al poco tiempo de su formulación. Así tenemos las propuestas de planificación en los años 1967, 1973 y 1981, que ...

Company-Produced Housing, Center For Economic Development Jan 1993

Company-Produced Housing, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

It is getting harder and harder for people working in urbanized areas to find affordable housing near their workplace. As new urbanized office and industrial areas expand and the cost of housing increases, employees are finding themselves having to commute longer distances between work and home. This results in traffic congestion, increased pollution and decreased employee satisfaction. Some companies are finding that the lack of locally available and affordable housing is making it harder to recruit and retain employees.

One solution to this problem is for large corporations to develop housing for their employees within walking distance of the job ...
