Urbanization of a Rural Community.
Sargent, Charles A.
The impact of urbanization on the residents of Hendricks County, Indiana is described in this report. Some costs and benefits of this process are enumerated. Data were obtained in 1968 from 25 state and local officials and businessmen, and from 116 interviews with farm and non-farm residents in Washington Township. The process of urbanization is described by the landscape changes, population growth, the economic base, and land use. Community service demandsand costs are influenced by changes in local public services including education, government, public safety, health and sanitation, welfare and correction, recreation, continuing education and resource develoment, and highways and streets. It is noted that the differences between metropolitan core and urban fringe residents may have serious implications. (PS)
