Contents Notes
This report offers step-by-step guidance for reviving cities in transition. Although the authors look at the challenges these communities face—from an aging population to urban sprawl to natural disasters—they focus on solutions. It suggests workable, scalable strategies for revitalizing cities and inner-ring suburbs. It describes the planner's role in building civic and policy support for creative approaches. And it shows how traditional planning tools can adapt to today's needs. In case studies from cities in the Rust Belt, the Sun Belt, and abroad, readers will find examples of urban recovery at work. Introduction -- Setting the stage -- The strategic framework for planning in cities in transition -- Designing a strategic policy plan for regenerating cities in transition -- Adapting traditional implementation tools -- Designing strategies to address the special challenges of cities in transition -- Planning for specific sites and properties -- Engaging the community -- Organizing for successful planning and implementation -- Conclusion -- Appendix: Case studies: Detroit: testing a collaborative, community-driven strategic plan for reconfiguring vacant land ; Allentown, Pennsylvania: Leveraging code enforcement with strategic acquisition to address problem properties ; Orange, New Jersey: Engaging the nonprofit and public sectors in combating problem properties ; Rialto, California: Minimizing risk in a boom-bust city.
