The Feasibility of Cooperative Planning in Fremont and Newark, California.
Powers, William F.; Price, Charlton R.
Fremont and Newark, California, are located in one of the most rapidly growing metropolitan areas in the United States. To help cope with growth problems, a feasibility study of cooperative planning (including all jurisdictions providing public services to this area) was conducted. Information was gathered, analyzed, and presented to people in the community, culminating in a community workshop to which a wide range of persons was invited. The study concluded that: (1) a definite need exists for a cooperative planning and action program; (2) educational planning can, and should, be integrated into overall community planning; (3) program alternatives include consolidation of jurisdictions, retaining the existing structure with more emphasis on coordination of activities, and organization of a "forum for the future" to discuss and provide solutions for the area's problems; and (4) such a program is feasible for the Fremont/Newark area. Samples of workshop materials, a summary of relevant Federal grant programs, an intergovernmental survey and planning information form, and a bibliography are appended. (LLR)
