Powerpoint- Setback Speech, Michael Lewyn 2017 Touro Law Center

Powerpoint- Setback Speech, Michael Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

Setback regulations often require that all buildings be a certain amount of feet (usually about 25-50 feet from the street).  As a result of these zoning rules, all destinations outside the most urban areas have to place either parking or useless green spaces between the street and a store, office building or residence.
 
I argue that these regulations make walking more difficult, for four reasons.  First, pedestrians have to waste time walking through these empty spaces.  Second, walking through a sea of parking is simply no fun.  Pedestrians tend to enjoy shade and a sense of enclosure, so they tend ...

Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn 2017 Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Law, Deakin Law School, Australia

Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn

Pace Environmental Law Review

The onshore resource conflicts that have erupted in the Eastern states of Australia highlight the deep need for axiomatic structural change in public resource ownership frameworks. Much of the conflict that has arisen stems from the failure of the state, as owner, to give proper regard to the social and environmental concerns relevant to the expansion of onshore resource development. The underlying rationale for vesting resources in the state is to ensure they are managed for the benefit of the community as a whole. The implied sumption is that public benefit obligations are met through state administration because this is ...


Let’S Be Reasonable: Why Neither Nollan/Dolan Nor Penn Central Should Govern Generally-Applied Legislative Exactions After Koontz, Glen Hansen 2017 Abbott & Kindermann, Inc.

Let’S Be Reasonable: Why Neither Nollan/Dolan Nor Penn Central Should Govern Generally-Applied Legislative Exactions After Koontz, Glen Hansen

Pace Environmental Law Review

This article explains why the Nollan/Dolan test should not apply to legislatively imposed exactions, provided that such exactions satisfy two key criteria: (1) the exaction is generally-applied; and (2) the exaction is applied based on a set legislative formula without any meaningful administrative discretion in that application. Legislative exactions that fail to meet those two criteria should be governed by the Nollan/Dolan standard of review in the same manner as the ad hoc adjudicative exaction in Koontz. Furthermore, legislative exactions that satisfy those two criteria also should not be governed by the factored analysis in Penn Central Transportation ...


The Road To Yamoussoukro, Vivica Brown 2017 Brakkam Aviation Management

The Road To Yamoussoukro, Vivica Brown

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

Air transportation plays an important role in any country’s evolution because it accelerates the convergence of goods and people. Creating a cooperative air transport system could unlock the potential for a long awaited, remarkable economic growth in Africa. “The African aviation market is perhaps one that has the most potential for growth out of the global regions, due to it being a comparatively young industry and servicing a large and rapidly developing population.” Africa is home to 15.96% of the world’s population, over 1.1 billion people, but it still accounts for less than 4% of the ...

Financial Inclusion In South Africa: An Integrated Framework For Financial Inclusion Of Vulnerable Communities In South Africa's Regulatory System Reform, Lydie Louis, Frederic Chartier 2017 Hult International Business School

Financial Inclusion In South Africa: An Integrated Framework For Financial Inclusion Of Vulnerable Communities In South Africa's Regulatory System Reform, Lydie Louis, Frederic Chartier

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

Vulnerable communities in developing countries like the poor in South Africa are not included in their country’s formal economy because the poor have little or no access to financial services. As such, the poor struggle to survive, and to capture the interests of the banking industry to provide them with access to affordable financial services. Public-private financial inclusion initiatives have been insignificant or proven unsustainable to include the poor into the financial fabric of their domestic country. This is because financial inclusion initiatives have primarily been defined, and designed as a “social responsibility” by the government and the banking ...


Armed Response: An Unfortunate Legacy Of Apartheid, Leila Lawlor 2017 Perimeter College of Georgia State University

Armed Response: An Unfortunate Legacy Of Apartheid, Leila Lawlor

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

After apartheid was repealed in South Africa, the country’s system of forced segregation officially ended. Vestiges of racial discrimination remain, however, including spatial segregation in housing, income inequality, and huge disparities in the government’s provisioning of basic services. The poorest of South Africa’s citizens live in peripheral communities, far from city centers and employment hubs. The poorest communities often lack safe streets and safe toilets. Whereas wealthier South Africans are able to pay private policing companies to provide armed security, those in the poorest of communities must live with regular fear of violent crime. The problem is ...


Citizen's Co-Production Of Public Safety As A Symptom Of State Failure: The Case Of South African Vigilantism, Dawid Szescilo 2017 University of Warsaw

Citizen's Co-Production Of Public Safety As A Symptom Of State Failure: The Case Of South African Vigilantism, Dawid Szescilo

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

The growing interest in co-production of public services reflects the need to liberate from the dichotomy between state and market provision. Whereas the concept of co-production is not new, it gained broader recognition among public administration scholars in recent years. What is characteristic for the academic discourse on this idea, is a strong focus on the benefits of co-production such as effectiveness, efficiency, responsiveness and quality of public services. This article provides more critical insight into co-production of public security by exploring the phenomenon of vigilantism in South Africa. The major aim of this article is to examine the major ...

New Forms Of Inequality In Cape Town: A Comparative Economic And Legal Study To Defend The Right To Housing, Wellington Migliari 2017 University of Barcelona

New Forms Of Inequality In Cape Town: A Comparative Economic And Legal Study To Defend The Right To Housing, Wellington Migliari

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

Inequality has been a topic in the core of many studies about urban development. Different theories contributed enormously to innovative reflections on the 2008 global financial crisis. However, the perverse economic practices on city construction and the housing issues remain. The aim of the present article is to show how far the right to housing in Cape Town has been affected by risky real estate investments. Unemployment rates, public money being involved in the property market and mortgage system for speculative purposes are some of the dependent variables that can shed light on these new urban forms of inequality in ...

Equitable Access To Public Transport: Corridor Plans For Transit-Oriented Development In Soweto, South Africa And Boston, Massachusetts Compared, Janice Griffith 2017 Suffolk University Law School

Equitable Access To Public Transport: Corridor Plans For Transit-Oriented Development In Soweto, South Africa And Boston, Massachusetts Compared, Janice Griffith

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

The article argues that municipalities should play a major role in ensuring equitable access to public transportation and in planning for transit-oriented development. It presents two case studies that illustrate the importance of these undertakings. In South Africa, apartheid spatial and racial segregation resulted in the exclusion of non-white residents from the urban core where the economy was centered. These residents, who were forced to live in a city’s outlying areas, experienced considerable difficulty in commuting to the workplace. To address the lack of transportation equity, the City of Johannesburg, with support from the national and provincial governments, embarked ...
