Applications Of Underground Structures For The Protection Of Critical Infrastructure, George H. Baker, Richard G. Little, Don A. Linger Nov 2002

Applications Of Underground Structures For The Protection Of Critical Infrastructure, George H. Baker, Richard G. Little, Don A. Linger

George H Baker

The U.S. President’s Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection (PCCIP), convened in the wake of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, concluded that the nation’s physical security and economic security depend on our critical energy, communications, and computer infrastructures. While a primary motivating event for the establishment of the commission was the catastrophic physical attack of the Murrah Building, it is ironic that the commission focused its attention primarily on cyber threats. Their rationale was that cyber vulnerabilities posed a new, unaddressed challenge to infrastructure security. This approach was further questioned by the events ...


A Model For Undergraduate Study In Urban Design, Brian Kesner, Lise Burcher, Maurice Nelischer, Vicente Del Rio Nov 2002

A Model For Undergraduate Study In Urban Design, Brian Kesner, Lise Burcher, Maurice Nelischer, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

Through this paper we intend to raise some fundamental questions regarding urban design education at the undergraduate level, and to discuss possible pedagogical strategies. The discussion is fostered by the brief description of a recently developed and still evolving proposal to provide an area of concentration in urban design education at the undergraduate level within the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at the California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, California. One of the starting points for our Cal Poly program development team - composed of faculty from the departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and City and Regional Planning - was to ...


Information And Communication Technology And The Part Urban Planners Can Play, P. Wales Oct 2002

Information And Communication Technology And The Part Urban Planners Can Play, P. Wales

Ned Wales

Extract:

At the beginning of the new millennium, information and communications technologies (ICT’s) are the centre of interest for both business and government. Increasingly, new development and urban policy is concerned with the opportunities and threats posed by the digital revolution and business and government need to respond strategically. The advantages of a proactive approach to ICT’s and the spin-off economic activity is the opportunity to create more sustainable communities which incorporate clean industry and reductions in use of non-renewable resources.

Despite recent market trends where correction in over speculative activity has seen technology stocks decline, it is ...


Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec Oct 2002

Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

The neoclassical design was the dominant design movement in landscape architecture at the turn of the last century, dictating the form and design of public parks for most of the first half of the twentieth century. Meridian Hill Park, located just north of the White ouse in Washington, DC, is considered the most ambitious neoclassical park ever conceived in the United States. The paper provides an overview of the design development of the park, illustrating how classical design precedents were used to create a contemporary neo-classical park.

Sprawl, Growth Boundaries And The Rehnquist Court , Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

This article addresses the constitutionality and wisdom of Oregon's urban growth boundary (UGB) program. The article concludes that the program is constitutional under current precedent, and that (contrary to claims made by UGB critics) there is little evidence that the UGB has caused Oregon's runup in housing prices. On the other hand, UGB supporters may have exaggerated the UGB's positive environmental results.

Reverse Commuting And Job Access In California: Markets, Needs And Policy Prospects, Robert Cervero, Yu-Hsin Tsai, Joulia Dibb, Andrew Kluter, Cornelius K. Nuworsoo, Irina Petrova, M. Reinur Pohan, Martin Wachs, Elizabeth Deakin Sep 2002

Reverse Commuting And Job Access In California: Markets, Needs And Policy Prospects, Robert Cervero, Yu-Hsin Tsai, Joulia Dibb, Andrew Kluter, Cornelius K. Nuworsoo, Irina Petrova, M. Reinur Pohan, Martin Wachs, Elizabeth Deakin

City and Regional Planning

Getting to work, keeping appointments, and taking advantage of employment support services require suitable transportation. Many low-income Californians do not own cars and, outside of large metropolitan areas, public transit services are often sparse or non-existent, making it difficult for jobless individuals to make the transition from welfare-to-work. The challenges are especially great for those trying to get from central-city residences to suburban jobs, so-called reverse commuters, since public transportation services have traditionally been aligned in the opposite direction. Propelling the growth in reverse commuting has been a number of powerful megatrends. Topping the list has been decentralization of employment ...

Regional Technology Assets And Opportunities: The Geographic Clustering Of High-Tech Industry, Science And Innovation In Appalachia, Edward Feser, Harvey Goldstein, Henry Renski, Catherine Renault

Edward J Feser

This study constitutes a systematic location analysis of the technology assets of Appalachia. The report identifies and documents sub-regional concentrations of technology-related employment, R&D, and applied innovation within and immediately adjacent to the 406-county service area of the Appalachian Regional Commission. By assembling and analyzing an extensive set of data at high levels of functional and spatial detail, the study reveals localized technology strengths that might be nurtured through focused economic development policy.

Planificar En El Ecuador: Utopía O Realidad, Fernando Carrión Mena Jul 2002

Planificar En El Ecuador: Utopía O Realidad, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Se ha criticado a la planificación en el Ecuador por "centralista", "tecnocrática", "normativa" y hasta "utópica"; sin embargo, se la sigue añorando y como paradigma se sitúa los ingentes esfuerzos de planificación de las décadas de los setenta y ochenta, que se expresaron en propuestas de largo y mediano plazo, y en proyectos de incuestionable impacto socio económico, orientados a satisfacer las necesidades de la sociedad.


The Changing Character Of Economic Development, John R. Mullin Jul 2002

The Changing Character Of Economic Development, John R. Mullin

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

This article lays out several key trends concerning industrial development that I have noted over the past ten years in my consulting practice and academic research. They are not exhaustive nor will they be reflected in all parts of the country. They do, however, point out that we need to continually adapt to the market place; we need to become more pro-active in controlling how and where we stimulate development; we need to insure that we provide the opportunity for industry to succeed; and, finally, we must be reflective of world events and the speed of change.

Defining The Pattern Of The Sustainable Urban Region - Development Of Regional Measurement Methods, Elizabeth Brabec, Geoffrey Mcd. Lewis Jun 2002

Defining The Pattern Of The Sustainable Urban Region - Development Of Regional Measurement Methods, Elizabeth Brabec, Geoffrey Mcd. Lewis

Elizabeth Brabec

To date, the debate on the sustainability of human settlements has focused on the urban portion of the land use pattern. Since urban areas rely on suburban, rural, and other less densely settled areas for their existence, these areas must be included in any sustainability assessment. This need for a regional view has resulted in a typology of regional form, which allows comparisons of relative sustainability between various regional land use patterns. Based on resource efficiency, this regional analysis includes measurements related to water, agricultural land, habitat, energy use, and transportation and identifies primary indicators for each category. Existing methods ...


Roundtable Series On Innovative Approaches To Land Conservation And Smart Growth, New England Environmental Finance Center Jun 2002

Roundtable Series On Innovative Approaches To Land Conservation And Smart Growth, New England Environmental Finance Center

Smart Growth

A series of six roundtable discussions was conducted by the New England Environmental Finance Center (NE/EFC) from January through May 2002, one in each New England state. The objectives of the series were to consolidate expertise in financing and coordinating projects that combine conservation and development on the landscape, and to identify key areas of unmet need that could be addressed by the NE/EFC. Each discussion entailed several case study presentations and facilitated discussion about what works, what doesn’t work, and what might work in financing and coordinating efforts that combine conservation and development. Key areas of ...


Impervious Surfaces And Water Quality: A Review Of Current Literature And Its Implications For Watershed Planning, Elizabeth Brabec Apr 2002

Impervious Surfaces And Water Quality: A Review Of Current Literature And Its Implications For Watershed Planning, Elizabeth Brabec

Elizabeth Brabec

Impervious surfaces have for many years been recognized as an indicator of the intensity of the urban environment and, with the advent of urban sprawl, they have become a key issue in habitat health. Although a considerable amount of research has been done to define impervious thresholds for water quality degradation, there are a number of flaws in the assumptions and methodologies used. Given refinement of the methodology, accurate and usable parameters for preventative watershed planning can be developed, which include impervious surface thresholds and a balance between pervious and impervious surfaces within a watershed.


La Violencia En Ecuador Y América Latina, Fernando Carrión Mena Apr 2002

La Violencia En Ecuador Y América Latina, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

No se puede desconocer que el tema de la violencia existe desde tiempos inmemoriales y que, por tanto, no es nuevo, al grado que se podría decir que es consustancial a la sociedad. Si bien la violencia ha existido desde que existe la sociedad, durante estos últimos años se ha convertido en uno de los temas más importantes de la agenda regional debido, entre otras cosas, al incremento de su magnitud, a la diversificación de formas en que se manifiesta, a la transformación de maneras de operar, al impacto que produce en las esferas sociales, políticas, económicas y culturales y ...


Benchmarking: Measurable Indicators Of Economic Success, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray Apr 2002

Benchmarking: Measurable Indicators Of Economic Success, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

All our communities are striving for economic success. Political platforms are built on promises of economic prosperity. However, we rarely thoroughly measure this success. Across the country people are increasingly interested in ensuring that government expenditures are well spent. We can note this interest at all levels of government ranging from local to national scales. As well, accountability, in all of its manifestations, is a critical element of the "quality movement" that is becoming acculturated in both the private and public sectors. This article focuses on how local economic development officials can measure and evaluate their professional activities in a ...


Smart Growth And Land Acquisition Priorities, New England Environmental Finance Center Mar 2002

Smart Growth And Land Acquisition Priorities, New England Environmental Finance Center

Land Conservation

It is well-known and generally accepted that all undeveloped land in New England cannot forever be protected from development; nor would this be a desirable goal, as continued economic development and population growth are near certainties. For these and other reasons, private land trusts and government agencies generally use explicit criteria to prioritize their land acquisition activities and prospects.

Much land protection in New England and elsewhere, however, has occurred without substantial attention to such land use needs as fostering the best locations for where people will live, businesses will locate, and infrastructure will be built to avoid degrading resources ...


La Descentralización En América Latina. Una Perspectiva Comparada, Fernando Carrión Mena Feb 2002

La Descentralización En América Latina. Una Perspectiva Comparada, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El proceso centralizador de la sociedad, la economía, la cultura, la política y el territorio -en un contexto de globalización y revoluci6n científico-tecnológica- ha conducido al desarrollo de su antítesis: la descentralización. Esta evolución, que se inició en Europa con anticipación a lo ocurrido en América Latina, requiere ser conocida y analizada, realizando un balance de las principales experiencias, así como de la historia de los procesos particulares, puesto que se ha constatado que, aunque existen cierras constantes, no hay un modelo general de descentralización: cada país en cada momento debe encontrar las soluciones más adecuadas para contrarrestar los efectos ...


Agricultural Land Fragmentation: The Spatial Effects Of Three Land Protection Strategies In The Eastern United States, Elizabeth Brabec, Chip Smith Feb 2002

Agricultural Land Fragmentation: The Spatial Effects Of Three Land Protection Strategies In The Eastern United States, Elizabeth Brabec, Chip Smith

Elizabeth Brabec

Fragmentation of agricultural land by urban sprawl affects both the agricultural production capacity of the land and its rural scenic quality. In order to assess the resulting fragmentation of the three most common types of agricultural land conservation tools in the United States, this study analyzes the spatial form of three land protection strategies: a purchase of development rights (PDR) program, a clustering program and a transfer of development rights program. By assessing a series of measures of success such as total acreage protected, size of parcels, contiguity and farming status, the study compares the effectiveness of programs that have ...
