Revitalizing Cities. Resource Publications in Geography.
Holcomb, H. Briavel; Beauregard, Robert A.
A geographic perspective of urban revitalization is provided in this publication, which is intended for geography professors, students, and researchers. There are seven chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the geographical aspects of urban revitalization. Urban decline and redevelopment is the focus of the second chapter. Discussed are parks, civic centers, and beautification; slum clearance, jobs, and public housing; central city decline; subsidized redevelopment from 1949 to 1970; interregional shifts and fiscal crisis; and community and urban development. The extent and causes of revitalization are dealt with in the third chapter. Chapters 4 and 5 deal with commercial redevelopment and residential revitalization, respectively. The importance of image and sentiment in the revitalization of urban areas is the topic of chapter 6. The concluding chapter examines social justice and the revitalization process. A bibliography is provided. (RM)
