Costs of sprawl (livre)

Costs of sprawl

 / Ewing, Reid H. & Hamidi, Shima. — New York ; Abingdon, Oxon : Routledge, 2017.

 xiii, 170 pages : illustrations, maps, tables, index, bibl.

 The book updates indices on the costs and benefits of county sprawl to 2010, refines the indices to include additional
 measures of the built environment, and validates the indices using U.S. data. It explores academic literature and
 models sprawl development's affect on traffic safety, public health, life expectancy, housing affordability and upward
 mobility. It presents a longitudinal analysis of sprawl in U.S. urbanized areas (2000 and 2010). Finally, brief examples
 of U.S. cities in metropolitan areas that performed well in each of the four index factors and the policies contributing to
 their results are provided: development density in Los Angeles, CA; land-use mix in Santa Barbara, CA; activity
 centering in Madison, WI; and street connectivity in Trenton, NJ.

The optimal town-gown marriage: Taking campus-community outreach and engagement to the next level (livre)

The optimal town-gown marriage: Taking campus-community outreach and engagement to the next level

 / Gavazzi, Stephen M. — [Charleston, SC] : [CreateSpace Independent Publishing], 2016.

 i, 246 pages : illustrations, bibl.

 The book reviews literature on town–gown relationships, presents a classification of the experiences of town–gown
 relationships into four types using an analogy to marriage, and describes the development and testing of the Optimal
 College Town Assessment tool. It discusses data gathering as part of the town–gown mobilization cycle, the roles of
 campus and community leaders, actions by leaders to strengthen the town–gown relationship, and developing
 intentional leadership. Finally, it lists ten actions that campus and community leaders can take for developing a
 harmonious town–gown relationship. The last two chapters refer to examples from Ohio State University at Mansfield
 for illustration.

The public wealth of cities: How to unlock hidden assets to boost growth and prosperity (livre)

The public wealth of cities: How to unlock hidden assets to boost growth and prosperity

 / Detter, Dag & Fölster, Stefan. — Washington, DC : Brookings Institution Press, 2017.

 xii, 259 pages : illustrations, graphs, tables, index, bibl.

 The book argues that cities need to better manage their social, human and economic assets. It considers why some
 cities go into decline, critiques cities that rely on past achievements, showcases case studies on turnaround cities
 and offers best practices for developing a city's assets. It recommends analyzing a city's balance sheet for under-
 utilized assets (e.g., real estate, utilities and commercial assets); using arms-length urban wealth funds to manage
 these assets to fund urban infrastructure investment; using social investments to improve health and reduce social
 problems; and boosting the value of human capital (i.e., improving school quality, focusing training on employers'
 needs and improving the business climate). International examples are provided.
