We are now seeing that organizing the city around fossil fuel consuming vehicles, and massive paved road systems requiring massive tax subsidies to support are not sustainable policies for long term development. Roweiss and Shoukrey begin to look at ways we build, design and plan metropolitan areas by focusing on the two poles of urban land development. You are expected to write about 3 paragraphs for each question to total about 2 pages for your original post.
1)Define and discuss the two poles of urban land development. How useful is it to think of long term planning from the standpoint of these concepts?
2)Now look at the paradigms approach to the urban land question. How useful is it to think of long term planning from these traditional ways of thinking? In what ways are they useful, and in what ways are they limited?
3)Look now critically at the concept of the urban land nexus. How useful is this approach to long term planning, and in what ways is it useful and also in what ways is it limited?
