Urban Revitalization
Policies and Programs

Edited by:

January 1995 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Over the past two decades, how have revitalization efforts in major cities fared? Have they met with success? What programs worked--and why? These are among the important issues addressed in Urban Revitalization. This volume is a collection of case studies carried out by the National Center for the Revitalization of Central Cities in 1990 under the auspices of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Center commissioned leading scholars in urban studies to carry out research and develop programs and strategies for a national policy for revitalizing central cities. The case studies presented in this volume focus on seven U.S. cities (Minneapolis, Baltimore, Atlanta, Portland, New York, Ft. Worth, and New Orleans) and examine revitalization programs over the past 15 to 20 years, analyzing their successes and failures. The information gathered in these case studies will prove invaluable for professionals and students of public management, economic development, and urban and policy studies.
