Oregon 2100: Urban Form And Settlement Patterns, Nohad A. Toulan Sep 1991

Oregon 2100: Urban Form And Settlement Patterns, Nohad A. Toulan

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

In 1987 New York City adopted the report of its "Commission on the Year 2000." A year later Los Angeles followed the same course and approved a report prepared by its "Los Angeles 2000 Committee." In Oregon we have been equally active in the development of alternative scenarios and strategic plans for the year 2000. The Oregon Progress Board and its Benchmarks is just one example. Others include Portland's Civic Index process and Future Focus, METRO's Goals and Objectives study and LCDC's Growth Management Study. These studies and numerous others across the country reflect a the desire ...

Ethnic Minorities In Portland: A 1990 Census Profile, Carl Abbott

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

In the last two years, Portlanders of all backgrounds have begun to pay serious attention to the problems and opportunities created by the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of their metropolitan area. The Oregonian and the broadcast media have focused a number of stories and reports on racial relations and racial tensions. The broad-based strategic planning efforts of the Civic Index project (1989-90) and the Portland Future Focus planning program (1990-91) have pinpointed racial and ethnic relations as one of the central issues that will determine the quality of life in the growing metropolis. The City Club of Portland is ...

State Economic Development Information Systems, Sheila A. Martin Aug 1991

State Economic Development Information Systems, Sheila A. Martin

Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies Publications

The expanded role of state governments in economic development has increased their need for a wide variety of economic, demographic, and marketing information. Many state governments have responded to these needs by developing systems to deliver economic and related information to state and local economic development offices, businesses, and the general public. This paper reports the results of a survey of economic development officials designed to disclose information about how extensive automated system development is, as well as to learn about system structure and operating characteristics, the quality and quantity of the data distributed, and any particular system strengths and ...

Profiling Rural America: A Guide To Data Sources And Analytical Techniques, Sheila A. Martin, Richard Mchugh Jul 1991

Profiling Rural America: A Guide To Data Sources And Analytical Techniques, Sheila A. Martin, Richard Mchugh

Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies Publications

Evaluating the economic conditions of local economies is an important input to the decisions of policymakers, firms, and individuals. General impressions of the condition of national or state economies obtained from aggregate data often mask important subs tate differences in economic performance.

State economic profiles are useful tools for presenting the dynamics of substate economic change. Because their economic conditions and environments can be very different, rural and urban areas are often compared in such profiles.

This report describes the major components of a complete economic profile, with special emphasis on rural-urban comparisons. A catalog of data sources and a ...

The Orenco Community Plan, Chuck Beasley, Mark Becktel, Vince Chiotti, Ruth Curtis, Hong Gao, Francie Royce, Ron Skidmore, Lynne Storz

Master of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop Projects

This document was produced by the eight students in the 1991 Comprehensive Planning Workshop, the capstone of the graduate-level urban planning curriculum at Portland State University.

Each year, the workshop members help a local government with a project that it lacks the resources to do by itself. This year, the City of Hillsboro asked that a community plan be developed for the Orenco area in Washington County, Oregon. Because of Orenco's unique character, Hillsboro would like to have the guidance a community plan provides when it deals with the area.

Orenco was an incorporated city in the early years ...

A Ranking Of U.S. Graduate Programs In Urban Studies And Urban Affairs, James G. Strathman Mar 1991

A Ranking Of U.S. Graduate Programs In Urban Studies And Urban Affairs, James G. Strathman

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

A ranking of 33 Urban Studies and Urban Affairs graduate programs in the U.S. is developed from peer ratings obtained in a program survey and from citation activity reported in the Social Sciences Citation Index over the 1986-89 period. In addition, a breakdown of citations by broadly defined subject areas is presented. The survey revealed a difference between Ph.D. and MUS/MA programs in the perceived relative importance of peer evaluation and citations as rating criteria. The survey results also indicate that the degree of familiarity with other programs is lower than what has been observed in most ...

Traffic Data Selection: An Evaluation Of Siting Criteria For Permanent Traffic Recorders, Richard Ledbetter, Kenneth Dueker, Milan Krukar, Vern Tabery

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

Traffic volume data are needed for design and construction zone traffic management. In addition, continuous traffic volume data (collected by automatic traffic recorders) is needed to factor short counts (24 hours or more) collected at key sites on the states highway network.

This study evaluates the procedures used by the Oregon Department of Transportation for collecting continuous traffic volume data to determine: (1) if the current location and number of automatic traffic recorders (ATRs) on Oregon's highway network is adequate for estimating monthly seasonal factors, and (2) if the current procedure of using group means, based on geographical regions ...

International Cities In The Dual Systems Model: The Transformation Of Los Angeles And Washington, Carl Abbott Jan 1991

International Cities In The Dual Systems Model: The Transformation Of Los Angeles And Washington, Carl Abbott

Urban Studies and Planning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Though both Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., have grown into world cities since the 1940's, there are differences between them that are explained better by the two model system approach than by other approaches. Washington is distinctly and deliberately isolated from its immediate surroundings and is the center of an international information network. Los Angeles is the production and distribution center of an international region - Mexico and the United States. A valuable measure of the difference is the high proportion of professional workers in Washington, in contrast to the employment structure in Los Angeles, which closely reflects the ...
