South Kingstown Ri: New Zoning For An Historic Mill, Maggie Jones, Richard Barringer Aug 2006

South Kingstown Ri: New Zoning For An Historic Mill, Maggie Jones, Richard Barringer

Planning

The village of Peace Dale in the town of South Kingstown, Rhode Island, developed around several mills that commenced operations in the 1800s. One mill, known as the Palisades, is still partially active and in excellent condition, but much of its square footage is unutilized. A citizens’ group of artists and business people joined with the mill owners and the town of South Kingstown to develop new zoning regulations to make more flexible the permitted uses for the mill site. The proposed zoning will allow the mill complex to feature a mix of retail, residential, and manufacturing uses, while preserving ...

Changing Maine, 1960-2010: Teaching Guide, Richard Barringer, New England Environmental Finance Center Jul 2006

Changing Maine, 1960-2010: Teaching Guide, Richard Barringer, New England Environmental Finance Center

Maine History & Policy Development

Unlike forty years ago, none of us is now certain what the future holds for Maine – except that it will be different. Maine has been transformed by the events of the recent decades. We have come into a new world, a new time – a new historical era, if you will. This new era, like previous eras in Maine history, will require of us new ways of thinking, new ways of understanding, new ways of organizing ourselves as a community of people, if the values and culture we share and cherish are to endure and flourish.

Evaluation Of Community Partners In Arts Access: An Interim Report To The John S. And James L. Knight Foundation, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert

Community Partners in Arts Access Evaluation

SIAP's interim report on the Knight CPAA evaluation included an analysis of the relationship of cultural participation and serious crime in North Philadelphia; an update on cultural participation in North Philadelphia and Camden; and a summary of interviews with grantees and others involved in CPAA. Regarding the impact of crime, using data on reported crime between 1999 and 2004, SIAP found no evidence that serious crime suppressed cultural participation in North Philadelphia. Rather, crime and cultural participation were positively correlated, the result of their mutual relationship with social diversity. Grantees generally had a positive view of the initiative, though ...

European Spatial Development, The Polycentric Eu Capital, And Eastern Enlargement, Carola Hein Jan 2006

European Spatial Development, The Polycentric Eu Capital, And Eastern Enlargement, Carola Hein

Growth and Structure of Cities Faculty Research and Scholarship

Over five decades a new decentralized model for the European capital city has emerged through the distribution of European Union (EU) institutions and agencies, but as the result of national compromise and competition rather than the implementation of a vision of Europe. More than a purely administrative issue, the location of EU headquarters opens questions on the nature of European spatiality, the relation between politics and space and the role of headquarters cities in that space. To date, the decentralized unplanned structure has brought economic and symbolic benefits to the host cities and nations, but has also caused—notably in ...
