Urban Agriculture Stormwater Management In California Cities, Rachel L. Cohen Jun 2013

Urban Agriculture Stormwater Management In California Cities, Rachel L. Cohen

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Cities within California are beginning to incorporate urban agriculture into their land use designations. Prompted by residents and local organizations, cities are hoping to capture the benefits that urban agriculture provides. Research has shown that urban agriculture renews and beautifies neighborhoods, provides healthy food choices, increases public health, has the potential to help with stormwater runoff, creates jobs, and fosters community. In the last few years, several California cities have made headlines as they have adopted new zoning codes that include urban agriculture.

In reviewing these new zoning codes and exploring the topic of urban agriculture, it became evident that ...


An Examination Of Walkability In The Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, Courtney Coughenour May 2013

An Examination Of Walkability In The Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, Courtney Coughenour

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

Introduction: The benefits to regular physical activity are well established. Walkability is one element of the built environment that has been correlated with increased levels of physical activity. The auto-centric design of Las Vegas Metropolitan area (LVMA) is unique in ways that may influence walkability. The purpose of this study was to determine which urban design characteristics are associated with walking and physical activity in moderate income neighborhoods in LVMA. Methods: The standard walkability measure developed by Frank et al. (2010) was used to calculate the walkability index of seven neighborhoods. Residents of the two most walkable and two least ...

The purpose of this study was to determine if the number of barriers reported in the clinics could be predicted by characteristics of the administrators or
characteristics of the practice.To increase accessibility to health care, interventions should focus on practices located in buildings built before 1993, practices with administrators who are younger and have limited experience as administrators, administrators with low levels of ADA knowledge and practices with smaller number of patients.

The chemical breakdown of plastics in the Pacific Ocean releases BPA, a known lipophilic endocrine disruptor(i) . The effects of this chemical are particularly felt in Alaska due to converging ocean currents and a traditional high-fat diet(i) . We focused on a long term solution and a short term fix to this growing issue. To minimize human exposure to such harmful substances, we propose modified filtration systems on statewide sources of plastic waste and, on a local level; prevent the consumption of and contact with substances that contain BPA(iii,iv) .

Fryeburg, ME is the site of an ongoing conflict with Nestlé Waters. This conflict concerns unfair pumping of the town’s water as well as the contract between Nestlé and the town water company itself. The goal of this project is to create a compromise that allows both the town and Nestlé to prosper off the natural resources in the area while making sure that the environment as well as the community is not harmed. We are suggesting a shorter and more flexible contract that appeases both the town and Nestlé.

In Worcester, MA, a group of urban farmers in a community called “The Shop” built a greenhouse to grow fresh produce year round. However, the greenhouse becomes too cold during winter months to sustain plant growth. Having experience with composting, The Shop is interested in pursuing biogas– methane produced from anaerobic digestion of organic waste– as a means to heat the greenhouse. This project uses data from case studies and other sources to calculate the amount of energy needed to heat the greenhouse and the expected energy yield from different obtainable substrates. Results verify that biogas is a viable way ...
