Metropolitan Neighborhoods: Participation and Conflict over Change. Resource Paper No. 16.
Wolpert, Julian; And Others
Metropolitan land use change, with a specific focus on the processes of participation and conflict over neighborhood development, is discussed. The resource paper is part of a series designed to supplement existing texts and to fill a gap between research and accessible materials in geography. Part I deals very generally with the implications of community participation and presents several mini-case studies to illustrate empirical problems involved. Analysis to identify neighborhood attributes and roles follows. In part II, two modeling approaches are employed to illustrate the impact of facility siting on surrounding neighborhoods. Part III presents a number of case histories to illustrate participation in conflict over siting of public as well as private facilities. There is a brief description of facility preferences, suburban strategies, and a number of alternative programs implemented by inner-city communities. Conclusions and recommendations are followed by an appended questionnaire and a bibliography. (Author/KSM)
