Wisconsin Area Planning and Development. Consortium Project, Title I, Higher Education Act 1965.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Univ. Extension.
The Consortium for Area Planning and Development was established in 1967 to implement the basic purposes of Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The Consortium's first seminar was held in May 1968 and was attended by 25 project leaders, local and state government officials, technical consultants, and representatives of various institutions of higher education. The proceedings summarize the major accomplishments of 4 Title I projects that were analyzed at the seminar, and contain discussions on issues associated with problems to be resolved, such as planning resources, land use planning and zoning, political aspects of area resource development, the aesthetic development of the City of Bayfield, and area development with particular reference to airsheds, watersheds, and garbage dumps. Three areas of concern for which programs could be carried out under Title I have been identified in Wisconsin: (1) improvement of state and local governmental services, (2) urban problems with emphasis on the central city of Milwaukee, and (3) community and area resource development. Title I projects must provide valuable learning experiences for all of the participants. Therefore, major emphasis is being given to the development of academic resources for solving community problems through action programs. (WM)
