Planning for Rural Communities. A Case Study of Zebulon North Carolina.
North Carolina State Univ., Raleigh. School of Design.
As part of an urbanization program, this study on Zebulon, North Carolina, was conducted in 1966 by fifth-year students at North Carolina State University. The student group was known as the Regional Task Force, the mission of which was to provide a description of the Zebulon region in terms of the definition of the systems which make up the region, correlations between the systems, and their impact on Zebulon and surrounding areas. Two systems were examined by the task force: the natural and the man-made. The task force listed information on the following as part of their study: population, employment, town services, city government, and socioeconomic problems. In conclusion, comments are made of the community power structure and its influence on the project and the submission of the Model Cities application to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Maps and charts are interspersed throughout the document, and appendices provide information on such factors as education, crime and juvenile delinquency, and Model Cities programs. (EL)
