Masterplanned Communities And Governance, Bhishna Bajracharya, Paul Donehue, Douglas Baker Nov 2007

Masterplanned Communities And Governance, Bhishna Bajracharya, Paul Donehue, Douglas Baker

Bhishna Bajracharya

In the last three decades, a number of master planned communities (MPCs) have been developed in South East Queensland (SEQ) as part of the response to the housing demands of rapid population growth. Developers, state government, local councils and communities play key roles in the production and management of infrastructure and community services in these Masterplanned communities. Alongside rising community expectations regarding quality of services, there is an increasing trend for developers to be involved in either the direct provision of infrastructure, or its funding, with local councils and the state government playing a facilitating role in provision of services ...

Stormwater Quality And Local Government Innovation, Stacey Swearingen White, Michael R. Boswell Nov 2007

Stormwater Quality And Local Government Innovation, Stacey Swearingen White, Michael R. Boswell

City and Regional Planning

Local governments need innovative practices to address nonpoint source pollution, which has proven to be the Achilles heel of efforts to improve surface water quality in the United States. Studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that 45% of assessed lakes and 39% of assessed rivers in the nation are polluted, and that agricultural and urban runoff were the primary sources of these problems (EPA, 2000, 2002). New approaches to address runoff are clearly necessary, and their success will depend on local government practices, yet we know little about how and why local governments innovate, particularly in ...

Saving The Inner Suburbs, Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

While Jacksonville's older, more walkable neighborhoods and its newest suburbs have been thriving, its 1950s and 1960s suburbs have been declining. This article analyzes the causes of (and possible solutions to) this problem.

El Desafío Político De Gobernar La Ciudad, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 2007

El Desafío Político De Gobernar La Ciudad, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las ciudades latinoamericanas están cambiando. De la «ciudad frontera», con una lógica de urbanización basada en la expansión de las periferias y la metropolización industrial, se ha pasado a una «ciudad en red», resultado de la globalización, la reforma del Estado y los cambios demográficos. En este nuevo contexto, se perciben en la región dos modelos políticos de gobierno de la ciudad: el de la ciudad empresarial privada, que recurre al mercado para inyectarle eficiencia a la gestión urbana, y el de la ciudad inclusiva, basada en una revalorización del espacio público y la promoción de derechos. La exitosa experiencia ...


Not Another Waikiki? Mobolizing Topophilia And Topophobia In Coastal Resort Areas, Daniel O'Hare Oct 2007

Not Another Waikiki? Mobolizing Topophilia And Topophobia In Coastal Resort Areas, Daniel O'Hare

Daniel O'Hare

Extract:

This chapter explores international discourses of love and aversion relating to the development of coastal tourism areas throughout the twentieth century. Particular attention is paid to the way that urban planning, design and development decisions relate to the broader discourse. Examples from Australia, Thailand, Spain and the United States are used to support an argument that topophilic and topophobic attitudes, in relation to some of the world’s best-known coastal mass tourism resorts, are used to inform development decisions in less developed coastal settlements. In this chapter, a discourse is understood as "any discussion or exchange of ideas, expressed ...

Interrogatorio A La Descentralización Latinoamericana, Fernando Carrión Mena Oct 2007

Interrogatorio A La Descentralización Latinoamericana, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En América Latina, el proceso de descentralización se inició con el quiebre de aguas que significó el retomo a la democracia, producido a fines de la década de los setenta y principios de la de los ochenta. Esto quiere decir que su existencia tiene no menos de 25 años, que nació de la mano de la redemocratización y que, por lo tanto, éste debería ser su signo.

Sin embargo, la descentralización también fue contemporánea de dos procesos simultáneos de reforma del Estado: el uno, de carácter político, que impulsó la llamada gobernabilidad por medio del fortalecimiento del presidencialismo y por ...

Transformaciones Urbanas: 25 Años Después, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En este último cuarto de siglo, en que el Diario Hoy ha sido testigo y actor privilegiado del convivir nacional, se ha producido un cambio estructural en el patrón de urbanización del Ecuador y en el desarrollo urbano de sus ciudades, que se puede caracterizar a través de los siguientes cuatro componentes fundamentales: 1. De rural a urbano 2. De municipio a gobierno local 3. De ciudad periférica a ciudad construida 4. La ciudad: un nuevo contexto


Architecture+Design 600, Joseph Krupczynski Oct 2007

Architecture+Design 600, Joseph Krupczynski

MIRA/LOOK: New Visions for Architecture in Holyoke (2008)

This studio promotes creative research and conceptually rigorous design methodologies that aim to illuminate, situate, and contest the complex circumstances within which a truly “sustainable” architecture can emerge — an architecture capable of escaping a narrow technological focus, while addressing the broader social and theoretical implications of sustainability. The interplay between site, culture and program is a key focus of the studio. Through critical assessments of a broad range of specific site conditions students develop investigative strategies for responsive architectural interventions that bridge the gap between theory and practice. This semester we will be working on a series of projects for ...


Post-9/11 U.S. Foreign Aid, The Millennium Challenge Account And Africa: How Many Birds Can One Stone Kill?, Francis Y. Owusu Oct 2007

Post-9/11 U.S. Foreign Aid, The Millennium Challenge Account And Africa: How Many Birds Can One Stone Kill?, Francis Y. Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

President George Bush presented one of his major post-9/11 foreign aid initiatives – the Millennium Challenge Account – as a tool for counteracting both global poverty and international terrorism. The policy is based on the view that poverty and terrorism are linked and therefore alleviating poverty would help combat terrorism. The design and the implementation of the program however suggest that the U.S. government may have other intentions for the MCA, including overhauling the foreign aid regime. This paper discusses the MCA’s effectiveness in addressing both poverty and terrorism by highlighting the complex relationships between them. It also discusses ...


The Fall Of The 1977 Phillies: How A Baseball Team's Collapse Sank A City's Spirit, Mitchell J. Nathanson Sep 2007

The Fall Of The 1977 Phillies: How A Baseball Team's Collapse Sank A City's Spirit, Mitchell J. Nathanson

Mitchell J Nathanson

Too often, the Philadelphia sports fan has been dismissed as a lout, a boorish dolt immune to reason, his vocabulary whittled down to a singular “boo.” This is particularly true when it comes to Phillies fans, who are more likely to turn on their team than any other in the city. Although the Eagles, Sixers and Flyers may hear it from the rafters when they’re not going well, only the Phils will hear it when they are. The strained relationship between the city and the Phillies, however, has deep historical and sociological roots; roots that directly correlate with the ...

Reforma Policial: ¿Realidad Ineludible De Una Nueva Doctrina De Seguridad?, Fernando Carrión Mena Sep 2007

Reforma Policial: ¿Realidad Ineludible De Una Nueva Doctrina De Seguridad?, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Un fantasma recorre América Latina: es el fantasma de una nueva doctrina de (in)seguridad. Todas las fuerzas de la vieja América Latina se han unido en esta santa cruzada para acosar juntas a este fantasma: la policía, la justicia, la cárcel, los gobiernos locales; la derecha y la izquierda; los opositores y los gobiernistas, la cooperación internacional y la población.

La población demanda seguridad, los políticos ofrecen su versión más represiva, la cooperación internacional está más presente que nunca, los Estados nacionales y subnacionales incrementan notablemente los recursos6, así como las propuestas de políticas se multiplican. Todos en esta ...

Design Intent And Conflicts Of The Ownership: Can A New Vision Rescue Taliesin East?, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff Aug 2007

Design Intent And Conflicts Of The Ownership: Can A New Vision Rescue Taliesin East?, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff

Landscape Architecture Conference Proceedings and Papers

THE PROGRESSION OF Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin East from an evolving experiment to a decaying relic provides an example of a discursive space and insight into the concept of ownership. A recently-submitted master plan for Taliesin’s buildings and landscape intends to preserve the architect’s home in the remote bluffs above the Wisconsin River near Spring Green, WI. Its current state refl ects how tensions which underlie the challenge of interpreting design intent can threaten the only thing capable of representing the architect’s work. The presentation will explore this discursive relationship between a cultural landmark and an ...


Incorporating Neighborhood Social Patterns Into Neighborhood Planning Models, Paul Duggan Aug 2007

Incorporating Neighborhood Social Patterns Into Neighborhood Planning Models, Paul Duggan

All Theses

ABSTRACT
Neighborhood models and patterns are used by developers, planners, and urban designers to plan new neighborhoods and guide the revitalization of older ones. Models are typically based on theories about ideal communities and frequently include significant social objectives.
Comparing neighborhood models with studies of neighborhood life, reveals that neighborhood social and behavioral patterns do not always fit the plan or social objectives of the proposed neighborhood models. There is a gap between the objectives and vision of the models and the patterns of life in the neighborhood. Social patterns such as neighboring, urban cognition, travel preferences and personal meaning ...

Five Myths About Sprawl , Michael E Lewyn Aug 2007

Five Myths About Sprawl , Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

In Sprawl: A Compact History, Robert Bruegmann, an art historian, has painted a superficially convincing case for the status quo, asserting that sprawl is “a natural result of affluence that occurs in all urbanized societies.” Bruegmann's book has generated glowing media publicity. This article suggests that Bruegmann overestimates the universality of sprawl, by overlooking the differences between pedestrian-friendly cities with some sprawling development and cities in which automobile-dependent sprawl is the only choice available to most consumers. In addition, Bruegmann understates the harmful social effects of sprawl, especially the effect of automobile-dependent development upon non-drivers. Bruegmann also consistently underestimates ...
