University-Urban Interface Program. University Forum. Background Paper. Goals and Government of the Metropolis.
Gow, J. Steele
This background paper for the Community Goals Forum at the University of Pittsburgh focuses on some of the local experiences that seem to be related to the Pittsburgh citizenry's low level of confidence in and expectation of local government as a means for improving the quality of life in the metropolis. The recent development of the great urban complexes in America is discussed in general terms, and a comprehensive review of Pittsburgh's experience in attempting to develop a government commensurate with the metropolitan community is given. Some alternative efforts, governmental and non-governmental, to substitute for metropolican government are noted. Proposals for discussion are suggested to further the purpose of the Forum's task to generate and clarify the optimal relationship between goals and government in the metropolitan community of Pittsburgh. See SO 004 802 for related documents. (Author/SHM)
