Cluster Battle Is Over, But The War Rages On, Chester Smolski Dec 1987

Cluster Battle Is Over, But The War Rages On, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The Chinese have a saying: 'Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think.' For Americans, the same could be said for zoning in the seemingly never-ending war between residents and developers over land development."


Herculean Task Ahead For R.I. Land-Study Panel, Chester Smolski Dec 1987

Herculean Task Ahead For R.I. Land-Study Panel, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It has an impressive title--Commission to Study the Entire Area of Land Use, Preservation, Development and Regulation. Selection of the 23 committee members was made by top governing and legislative officials--governor, lieutenant governor, State majority leader and House speaker. It has a budget of $50,000 and is supposed to submit recommendations to the General Assembly by Feb. 25--a virtual impossibility."

Contracting For Social Service Client Transportation: Multnomah County, Oregon, Final Report, Kenneth Dueker, Judy S. David Dec 1987

Contracting For Social Service Client Transportation: Multnomah County, Oregon, Final Report, Kenneth Dueker, Judy S. David

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

The Multnomah County Aging Services Division (ASD) and the tri-county developmentally disabled programs provide transportation services for their elderly and handicapped clients primarily by contracting with TRI-MET, the regional transit district. This system is strained because the demands for transportation services are increasing, the cost of contracted services exceeds the county's transportation funds, the quality of service does not meet all clients' needs, and TRI-MET has been spending less of its primary funding sources on elderly and handicapped transportation. The county therefore contracted with the Center for Urban Studies of Portland State University, to examine the current provision of ...

High Price Of Housing Has Some Unseen Costs, Chester Smolski Nov 1987

High Price Of Housing Has Some Unseen Costs, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Affordability is the major problem in the housing industry today, at least in this part of the country. The Northeast, now the most expensive area in the nation in which to build a house, is fine for those who are sitting in their appreciating houses, but the region is at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to attracting a pool of talented people to live and work here."


Middletown Needs A Better Eye To Its Future, Chester Smolski Nov 1987

Middletown Needs A Better Eye To Its Future, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"In the last 25 years this town in the middle of Aquidneck Island has undergone the most dramatic swings of population of any community in the state. Subject to decisions made in Washington, D.C., as to the concentration of Navy personnel, Middletown has had more than its share of ups and downs. Having its own Navy facilities and housing as well as housing personnel based in Newport, Middletown has seen its 1960 population of 12,675 explode to 29,900 in 1970 and then experience the greatest population loss in the 1970s of any of the nine Rhode Island ...


Shape Of Things To Come, Chester Smolski Nov 1987

Shape Of Things To Come, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The age-old saying is that the future belongs to the young. However, in terms of new potential markets, the business sector ought to consider changing demographics, in nation and state, because the future for the merchants of goods and services may very well be with the old."


Notable Efforts To Meet Emerging Housing Needs, Chester Smolski Oct 1987

Notable Efforts To Meet Emerging Housing Needs, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"This is a landmark year in the historical development of housing in the nation, ad Rhode Island almost became a part of this bigger picture. One noteworthy event has already taken place, and two special birthdays are observed throughout the year."

Helping Communities Determine Development, Chester Smolski Oct 1987

Helping Communities Determine Development, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The word uppermost in the minds of many communities these days is 'development,' a process that manifests itself on the land in the form of the built environment. Alarmed at the speed with which land is being used--and often abused--communities are being faced with touch decisions on how to cope with development, either by directing it, managing it or even stopping it."

Some Back-Yard Arguments Are Best Left At Home, Chester Smolski Sep 1987

Some Back-Yard Arguments Are Best Left At Home, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Governing authorities must contend and work with many special-interest groups in order to plan the growth and development of their communities. Whether these groups are concerned with better schools, garbage pickup, no growth, economic development or the environment, the issues may require action, and often the only way to get the attention of the local council is to band together and confront authorities with the issue."


Return Of The Student Tempo, Chester Smolski Sep 1987

Return Of The Student Tempo, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It's that time of the year again when summer wanes and fall approaches. In the minds of many, this change to autumn occurs around Labor Day when the kids go back to school, rather than the official, later occurring, Autumnal Equinox. So, another season and the new academic year is upon us."

Preferred Location For A Jewelry Trade Center Is Downtown Providence, Chester Smolski Jul 1987

Preferred Location For A Jewelry Trade Center Is Downtown Providence, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"When the state of Rhode Island determined that a new court facility was needed in the Providence area in the late 1970s, a strong case was made to locate it on the state land near the Adult Correctional Institution in Cranston. A site there would have adequate space for parking, easy access off of Route 95 and a proximity of court to jail that would seem to make it a natural choice, given our propensity to site buildings and functions with deference to cars rather than people."

Invisible Industry, Visible Rewards, Chester Smolski Jun 1987

Invisible Industry, Visible Rewards, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The week of May 17 to May 23 appeared to be an ordinary one, but it was singled out at the national level as National Tourism Week and, in the state, as Rhode Island Tourism Week, in case you did not know, and it was recognized by both the governor and by the mayor of Providence at recent luncheons. Well, ho-hum, another of the many proclamations and paper awards that so often come out of these offices that few give them much attention. But this one should cause Rhode Islanders to sit up and take notice."
