THE PROCESS OF URBANIZATION. PROCEEDINGS OF A COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE. (MANHATTAN, KANSAS, DEC 6, 1966).
DEINES, VERNON, ED.; RICHARDS, LOWELL, ED.
THESE ABSTRACTS OF CONFERENCE PAPERS INDICATE FORCES AND ASPECTS OF URBANIZATION. ANYTHING CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRONG SOCIAL TIES IS HEALTHY AND ANYTHING DESTROYING VIABLE NEIGHBORHOODS IS UNHEALTHY. SINCE MINIMUM SIZE OF MARKET AND SUPPLY AREAS ARE PRECONDITIONS FOR SUSTAINED URBAN GROWTH, NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES WOULD INCREASE THEIR MARKET AREA AND GROWTH POTENTIAL BY COOPERATING. SINCE POLITICAL BOUNDARY LINES MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE UNIT OF GOVERNMENT TO MAKE A COMPREHENSIVE DECISION FOR A TOTAL INTERDEPENDENT AREA, ALTERNATIVES SUCH AS CITY AND COUNTY CONSOLIDATION MUST BE FOUND. TO ENABLE LONG RANGE PLANNING TO ELIMINATE CRISES IN TRANSPORTATION AND PUBLIC FACILITIES, URBAN CENTERS MUST RECEIVE ACTIVE AND ADEQUATE FISCAL AND TECHNIAL SUPPORT FROM ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. (PROCEDURES AND OUTCOMES OF A GAMING SIMULATION ARE OUTLINED, SHOWING THAT THE GAME DISCLOSES CRITICAL DATA REQUIRED TO MAKE DECISIONS CONCERNING ANY MULTI-CITY REGION.) (RT)
