Today's Action Tomorrow's Profit. An Alternative Approach to Community Development.
Burnell, Elaine H., Ed.
During May 1972, the Adult Education Center of Santa Barbara City College sponsored a symposium on the goals and purposes of planning for community development. Through lecture and discussion, members of the community undertook a critical review of the related problems of community, growth, population, taxes, transportation, zoning and water. This pamphlet represents the work of the World Game class in Continuing Education of Santa Barbara City College. The pamphlet is divided into three parts. Part one deals with Perspective, Past and Present and covers the meaning of community growth and progress, and the county general plan. Part two, entitled Unlimited Expansion: County Cost or County Benefit?, encompasses population, property taxes, transportation, zoning and water. The third part, The Challenge and the Opportunity deals with the consequences of today's actions and offers an alternative approach to community development. Acknowledgments and a formula for action conclude this pamphlet. (BT)
