Healthy communities must also be sustainable communities. (1/132)

The author contends that healthy communities must be both environmentally and socially sustainable, given that health depends on the quality of the built and natural environments, and that global change resulting from the industrial economy is affecting the web of life. He argues that suburban sprawl wastes scarce resources and disproportionately places those resources in the hands of suburban dwellers. Urban areas can be made more environmentally sustainable, especially with respect to energy consumption, which will help reduce air pollution and climate change and contribute in other ways to improved health.  (+info)

The city government's role in community health improvement. (2/132)

Amid increasing pressures to address complex issues not traditionally assigned to localities, Healthy Cities is seen as a powerful model for community improvement and quality-of-life enhancements for individuals and organizations willing to think beyond the traditional local government management models and responsibilities. As a model for community-oriented government, it offers opportunities for fostering a return to "barnraising" concepts, civic responsibility, participation, tailoring solutions to local circumstances, and the transition of local government to governance models.  (+info)

Police as contributors to Healthy Communities: Aiken, South Carolina. (3/132)

In Aiken, South Carolina, community policing has led to numerous innovative programs that have contributed to a healthy community.

Other programs include a mentoring program for at-risk teen girls; instant crime reporting with donated cellular phones; seminars for seniors to alert them to scams and common crimes; demolition of unsafe homes; free installation of smoke detectors; a child ID program; and parental education on child brain development.  (+info)

A park for all the people. (4/132)

A small park in downtown Oakland, California, has been a focal point for community-building and neighborhood improvement. This effort embodies the Healthy Cities cooperative approach to promoting social justice and positive community change. The story of the revitalization of this park is a story of individual and personal actions that collectively have shaped policy and strategy to improve the quality of life in this city.  (+info)

The pathology of planning. (5/132)

A study of morbidity on a new housing estate reveals a higher prevalence rate of both physical and mental illness. Much of this is due to physical factors associated with the estate which could have been avoided in the light of previous experience had more attention been given to detail. The proposals embodied in the management arrangements for the reorganised National Health Service should provide the machinery to prevent these faults recurring.  (+info)

Root shock: the consequences of African American dispossession. (6/132)

Urban renewal was one of several processes that contributed to deurbanization of American cities in the second half of the 20th century. Urban renewal was an important federal policy that affected thousands of communities in hundreds of cities. Urban renewal was to achieve "clearance" of "blight" and "slum" areas so that they could be rebuilt for new uses other than housing the poor. Urban renewal programs fell disproportionately on African American communities, leading to the slogan "Urban renewal is Negro removal." The short-term consequences were dire, including loss of money, loss of social organization, and psychological trauma. The long-term consequences flow from the social paralysis of dispossession, most important, a collapse of political action. This has important implications for the well-being of African Americans. It also raises important questions about the strength and quality of American democracy.  (+info)

Biological consequences of land use. (7/132)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Author(s): Eid, Jean & Overman, Henry G & Puga, Diego & Turner, Matthew A. 2007 Abstract: We study the relationship between urban sprawl and obesity. Using data that tracks individuals over time, we find no evidence that urban sprawl causes obesity. We show that previous findings of a positive relationship most likely reflect a failure to properly control for the fact the individuals who are more likely to be obese choose to live in more sprawling neighbourhoods. Our results indicate that current interest in changing the built environment to counter the rise in obesity is misguided.

Latham Circle store is welcomed, opposition rises in Ballston Spa The retailer is building what will become the first anchor store at the Shoppes at Latham Circle, the former site of Latham Circle Mall, a 180,000-square-foot supercenter with a full grocery store. In Ballston Spa, the discount chain wants to build a supercenter at routes 50 and 67 but it has faced some heated opposition from Smart Growth Ballston. Earlier this month, Smart Growth Ballston announced the results of a survey that said between 65 and 70 percent of respondents opposed big-box store development. Darren Dopp, a partner in Patricia Lynch Associates public relations firm who works with Wal-Mart, said the area where the chain proposes to build has an auto parts store and a dollar store being built next to the site and an Agway store around the corner. Despite the public opposition, with competing pro and con signs on residents lawns, Wertz said the chain has listened to neighbors views. Besides building its traditional
Downloadable! In the U.S., urban sprawl and the rise in obesity rates have been two powerful trends during the latter half of the 20th century. Previous empirical work has found that obesity rates are influenced by labor market outcomes that are fundamentally shaped by the spatial pattern of developed land. We examine these potential linkages in an urban spatial model augmented to include time allocation and weight. Residents maximize utility defined over housing, weight, and food subject to a fixed time budget allocated to commuting, calorie expenditure, and work. We examine how weight is affected by commuting distance, food prices, and the rate of calorie expenditure; how a reduction in transportation costs affects weight throughout the city; and how initial weight affects location decisions. We identify, and explore the significance of, the conditions under which weight gain is associated with common features of sprawl.

Hi, I know one of these tools can estimate network buffer size on an end-end basis, I think it is ndt? If anyone on this list is familiar with the technique used, please reply. I was pondering whether the TCP test client continues to increase the CWND, measuring RTT along the way till it detects some level of retransmits. Then with the throughput achieved and RTT (before retransmission threshold), calculate network buffer size.

If they understood, they would allow new residents to live in apartments in their city. I cant believe that human nature is bad - if they understood the impact of denying that [smart growth to protect the climate - the core of modern regional planning practice] then they would change their mind."

Must the strip mall and the eight-lane highway define 21st century American life? That is a central question posed by critics of suburban and exurban living in America. Yet despite the ubiquity of the critique, it never sticks-Americans by the scores of millions have willingly moved into sprawling developments over the past few decades. Americans find many of the more substantial criticisms of sprawl easy to ignore because they often come across as snobbish in tone. Yet as this book explains, sprawl does create real, measurable social problems. This book is unique in two important ways. First, while it highlights the deleterious effects of sprawl on civic life in America, it is also evenhanded. The book does not dismiss the pastoral, homeowning ideal that is at the root of sprawl, and is sympathetic to the vast numbers of Americans who very clearly prefer it. Secondly, the books critique is neither aesthetic nor moralistic in tone, but based on social science. Utilizing a landmark 30,000-person survey,
Schools used to be the heart of a neighborhood or community. Children and not a few teachers could walk to class, or to the playground or ball field on the weekend. This was relatively easy to do, because the schools were placed within, not separated from, their neighborhoods. They were human-scaled and their architecture was not just utilitarian, but signaled their importance in the community. Now it has become hard to tell one from a Walmart or Target.

What better way to demonstrate the concepts of urban sprawl, automobile-dependent city planning and economies of scale than by analyzing the very geographic context of our schools themselves? This is a very nicely arranged photo essay that most could spark conversation and would foster some discussion on how best to plan neighborhoods and spatially arrange the city.

Dry Cell (for soprano saxophone and electronics) was originally conceived as a narrative: In a future dystopic world absent of humans, only the remains of our technology survive. With energy running out, the "batteries" are left gasping for power. The piece begins in the "old west" of this future age, and as it progresses (and builds in intensity) we move into the remains of our major cities and see the remains of urban sprawl and the batteries clinging to life. The piece is loosely inspired by Alan Weismans The World Without Us ...

So said Geoffrey Anderson from the Environmental Protection Agency this afternoon at the Greensboro Historical Museum.. Anderson was in town to present the 2004 Smart Growth Award to the City of Greensboro for the Southside development. (Most of the credit for that project should go to Sue Schwartz, who is the citys chief neighborhood planner, and just an all-around great person. You rock, Sue! . . . ahem . . . now, back to what Mr. Anderson said.). What really struck me about Andersons talk was how un-regulatory it was. He started by noting how much smart growth in the US has been locally driven, and is not the result of state or federal mandates. Southside is a perfect example of that. Greensboro wanted to help a blighted area, came up with a novel development ordinance, and just got it done.. Anderson also noted that the market for this kind of development is already strong and is growing because of changing demographics in the U.S. Whereas traditional housing developments since the 1950s ...

Cities need to ask citizens if their communities are walkable. That doesnt happen right now." - Ron Sims You say the issue of walkable communities is a civil rights issue. Can you explain what you mean?. Communities of a color are seldom beneficiaries of walkable investment.. Poor communities and communities of color seldom receive the paths and wide sidewalks needed for safe walking.. At the 2015 National Walking Summit you challenged us to turn walking advocates into a movement. How do we build a successful movement?. Movements require us to make alliances with smart growth and healthy community programs.. Walking advocates need to educate the health care system on the benefits of walkable communities.. People need to meet with health care leaders in your communities- doctors, hospitals, clinics, insurance companies.. When you talk to health care professionals, tell them why they should do this and where in the community it should be done.. What are the two major things that the walking ...
Add to calendar. Costa will present his research using historical GIS data to investigate the relationship between transportation policy decisions and the formation of São Paulos peripheral area. The paper uses Granger causality models and data on transportation and urban development to measure the co-development of these factors in the city between 1881 and 2013. Findings confirm the hypothesis that the peripheral urban sprawl of São Paulo is related to road transportation deployment. Evidence shows that mass transit investments have historically been followed by significant building densification in surroundings. Costas research explores how critical juncture decisions made during the 1930s prioritized road development while mass transit plans remained on the drawing board. Trolleys and railways stimulated land development in the early twentieth century, but over time the city moved forward, and the mass transit network was no longer capable of following São Paulos urban sprawl.

California is a leader among states in the nation to curb carbon pollution with strong near- and long-term emission reduction goals under its landmark law AB32, and supportive policies to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, clean cars, low carbon fuels and smart growth, as well as its emissions performance standard for new baseload power. The states goals are realistic but ambitious. A number of tools and technologies will be needed for these goals to be met, and the Panels job was to examine the potential role of CCS more closely, identify barriers to its development and make recommendations for how to overcome them, if appropriate.. The Panel agreed that CCS is an important tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and that the technology exists to do this safely and effectively today. ...

Despite public misgivings, some planners and community activists say attached homes are exactly what the region needs. Without higher-density development, housing wont keep up with the rising population, they say. An ongoing housing shortage could escalate already-soaring home prices, locking low-and middle-income residents into a lifetime of renting.. The region needs "more compact housing development, more vertical housing development," said Lynne Baker, who co-chairs the Housing Action Network.. "There is more profit motive for estate homes, but the real demand is at the other end, for multifamily," said Baker, who is with the Endangered Habitats League.. Changing building patterns wont be easy, said Michael McLaughlin, planning director for the San Diego Association of Governments. The California tax structure makes it more profitable for cities to favor retail and commercial construction over residential projects, he said.

Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) is the new video from Arcade Fire album The Suburbs. But this is not the point. Beyond the traditional video ( watch it below), you can find an interactive version at www.sprawl2.com (webcam and broadband recommended): just dance and move your arms in front of the screen, and "the quicker you move, the faster the frames play. You slow down, the caracters in the video slow down. You freeze and the video starts to loop on the beat, creating a new choreography in the choreography". A great work of the director Vincent Morisset who says: "For a long time, Ive been wanting to do an interactive project without any interface. Something really primitive and fun. A web experience free of clicks or buttons. Two years ago, Régine told me that they would probably be a dancy song on "The Suburbs" that could fit with the idea. It ended up being Sprawl II. What an amazing song!".. ...

About health and urban development. There is growing recognition that the built urban environment has a significant influence on peoples health; a clear relationship has been drawn between the urban environment and a range of chronic diseases such as overweight and obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. The mental health of populations is also impacted by the environment. The negative health impacts of air, water, and land pollution and contamination have long been understood. There is also increasing recognition of the importance of ecological sustainability to population health..

Analyzes the potential impact of community growth and the built environment on residents health, emergency preparedness, nutrition, pedestrian safety and traffic, and physical activity as a way to make health part of the decision-making process.
There are several contributors to this kind of decline. Most notable is the mid-twentieth century deindustrialization of the region, which was ignited when manufacturing and heavy industrial firms started to look to the southern United States (and overseas) for cheaper labor. This, coupled with the improvements in transportation that made certain geographic advantages (such as Pittsburghs location on three rivers or Clevelands vital connection to Lake Erie and her networks) obsolete, forced many mills and factories to close between 1960 and 1990.. The second most important contributor to the urban decline witnessed over the last several decades is suburbanization, or urban sprawl. As the entire country progressively shifted from walking and using trains and streetcars to the personal automobile, the built environment followed suit. Engineers and planners alike teamed up to mold old cities and build new ones that would accommodate the automobiles every need, such as mobility (in place of ...

Description. This is a seminar about the ways that urban design contributes to the distribution of political power and resources in cities. "Design," in this view, is not some value-neutral aesthetic applied to efforts at urban development but is, instead, an integral part of the motives driving that development. The class investigates the nature of the relations between built form and political purposes through close examination of a wide variety of situations where public and private sector design commissions and planning processes have been clearly motivated by political pressures, as well as situations where the political assumptions have remained more tacit. We will explore cases from both developed and developing countries. This is a seminar about the ways that urban design contributes to the distribution of political power and resources in cities.

As population growth outpaces available land, cities expand far beyond their formal administrative boundaries. This urban sprawl can be seen in many cities around the world, and not only in developing regions. From 2000 to 2015, the ratio of the land consumption rate to the population growth rate in Eastern Asia and the Oceania was the highest in the world, with developed regions second. Other regions, such as South-Eastern Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, showed a decrease in that indicator over the same time period. Unfortunately, a low value for this ratio is not necessarily an indication that urban dwellers are faring well, as this can indicate a prevalence of overcrowded slums. Unplanned urban sprawl undermines other determinants of sustainable development. For example, for every 10 per cent increase in sprawl, there is a 5.7 per cent increase in per capita carbon dioxide emissions and a 9.6 per cent increase in per capita hazardous pollution. This illustrates the important ...
Several studies have shown both the increased risk for death following MI for people with COPD and differences in management. These studies specifically showed reduced use of secondary prevention and pPCI after a STEMI in patients with COPD,5 ,10 ,16-18 these findings have been replicated here. This study has also shown that these differences in treatment are possible explanations for some of the mortality gap at the population level for both STEMIs and non-STEMIs. In particular, we were able to make use of the detailed timing variables available in MINAP to investigate differences in time to reperfusion after a STEMI.. For STEMIs, we found that diagnosis of MI is more likely to be delayed for patients with COPD compared with non-COPD patients, and that time to reperfusion is longer after a STEMI. We also showed that the effect of delay in diagnosis of MI on the time to reperfusion was greater in patients with COPD compared with non-COPD patients. Patients with COPD were more likely to have a ...
Will S. 744-also known as the controversial 2013 immigration bill that is now under consideration by Congress-affect the caregiver and clinical workforce that is sorely needed to take care of Americas growing older adult population? Can telemedicine help diabetic elders in rural areas get faster and better care? If Bangladesh can become an Age-Friendly City, what about your city or town? Will the Affordable Care Act have a positive impact on health disparities among lower income elders? Can we teach long-term-care workers to treat all elders with respect, no matter their culture?

The transformation of South Columbia Street is just about complete. Motorists and pedestrians who, for the last couple of years, have navigated around barricades and lane closures now can travel between Manning Drive and South Road smoothly and safely. As part of the Universitys overall strategy to improve pedestrian safety, the Campus Pedestrian Safety Committee advocated mak-ing that heavily traveled section of South Columbia more pedestrian friendly and creating improved access to both sides of the street. In the process, University officials worked with the Town of Chapel Hill and the N.C. Department of Transportation to give the area a makeover, both functionally and cosmetically. That process included moving the sidewalk away from the curb to create a safety buffer for pedestrians, creating separate designated bus and bicycle lanes, adding a new bus shelter and creating a new cross-walk and signal at Medical Drive. When electricity is connected to the signal within the next few weeks, ...
Can the greatness of a city be quantified? The city of Nineveh, capital of the Neo-Assyrian empire of 911-627 BC, was once described as an exceedingly great city, three days journey in breadth [1]. Today, a city described as such would more likely be dismissed as an urban sprawl let down by an inefficient transport infrastructure. Without reference to travelling-time constraints, size is clearly not a sufficient measure of greatness-just like rank and title can be poor predictors of influence in social networks [2,3]. Of the many candidates [4,5], the simplest objective measure of success is, possibly, the extent to which a city fulfils its primary purpose of maximizing the number of face-to-face, opportunity-spawning, interactions between its inhabitants [6]. From the rise of the Medici in fifteenth century Florence to the prestige of an efficient transport system in a twenty-first century metropolis, this connectivity is synonymous with both the eminence of individuals and the success of ...
A Letter from the Executive Director, Jodi Mucha BC Healthy Communities Societies (BCHC) is continually exploring how to provide the best evidence-informed and practice-based services and supports to the communities we serve.  As BC’s Healthy-Community leaders, we have an important role to play in maximizing community impact for lasting change.

Since the 20th century, urbanization has been the main characteristic of global land development. If we can reveal and understand the characteristics and underlying mechanisms of urban development, we can then identify a sustainable development pattern for cities. In this paper, we primarily focus on the determinants of two main types of land use in urban development, industrial and commercial, in an empirical study of Beijing. We use a spatial data analysis method to seek and model major determinants of industrial and commercial land growth in the period of 2000-2010 in Beijing. A spatial logistic regression model is used to explore the impact of spatial independent variables on these two types of land use. The study shows that: (1) newly-added industrial land during 2000-2010 received significant contributions from the number of local enterprises engaged in services in 2010, the use of land for agriculture and construction in the neighborhood in 2000 and planning orders; (2) factors contributing to
Kyōto (京都) [http://raku.city.kyoto.jp/sight_e.phtml] was the capital of Japan for over a millennium, and carries a reputation as its most beautiful city. However, visitors may be surprised by how much work they will have to do to see Kyotos beautiful side. Most first impressions of the city will be of the urban sprawl of central Kyoto, around the ultra-modern glass-and-steel train station, which is itself an example of a city steeped in tradition colliding with the modern world.

All of that while China subsidizes a 1950s base factory system with a few spotlights on high-tech here and there. They run extremely polluting factories and are seeing things like lung cancer in cities go upwards. When a city disappears from satellite due to smog, you know you have a problem. When a yellow, noxious cloud hangs over it continuously, even after rain storms, you have an immense problem. Without a market and societal based feed-back into the industrial base, that base will be non-sustainable. Cheap gas, oil, and land have led to urban sprawl and decay, which it already had but is now spreading faster. Compress the US history between 1910 and 1960 without the sustainability of industry and you get an idea of the problems China will have. They are also getting this damned thing known as cheap telecom, which is starting to liquidize their social cohesion. Attempting to put a Great Firewall in has proven that you need lots of folks to plug leaks and that some of those folks are none ...
On a warm, sunny day in July, I took a ride to the top of the Sears Tower in Chicago. By coincidence, it happened to be just a few days after the citys most distinctive landmark was officially renamed. Its now called the Willis Tower, for a London-based insurance company that acquired the naming rights. I had come to Chicago to contemplate urban sprawl, so the timing seemed symbolic: Sears began to lay plans for the tower in the 1960s and built it in the early 1970s, back when major corporations still saw our historic city centers as the real seats of power. But that would change, and by 1989 Sears was planning to build a sprawling, 786-acre office park some 33 miles northwest of downtown, in a suburb called Hoffman Estates. Read more ...
More than 700 000 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children younger than 19 years old live in the United States.1 These AI/AN children experience higher rates of morbidity and mortality from unintentional injuries than do other US children. The 881 injury deaths to AI children between 1992 and 1994 translate to an overall rate of 52.3 deaths per 100 000 children per year. This rate is almost twice the US rate of 28.3 per 100 000 children for all races (1993).2 Rates of injury deaths are high for rural and urban AI/AN populations.3. Although rates of injury death have dropped considerably during the past 25 years, they remain disproportionately high among AI/AN children for the most common causes of injury. Fatality rates for motor vehicle occupant injuries are 3 times higher for AI/AN children than for white and black children.1 Pedestrian-motor vehicle collision deaths are almost 4 times that for all US races combined, and drowning, the second leading cause of injury death, occurs at ...
GAO discussed management and budget issues related to the Department of Housing and Urban Developments (HUD) proposed reorganization. GAO noted that: (1) HUD will need to substantially change its organizational culture, focus on its reinvention initiatives, and dedicate the resources necessary to complete these initiatives if it is to successfully reinvent itself; (2) the Government National Mortgage Corporation may not be able to adequately focus on risk areas and respond to future management challenges because of staffing limitations; (3) HUD information systems are not adequately secure and have not been planned and managed to meet its missions and strategic objectives; (4) HUD will need sustained management commitment to implement the corrective actions identified; (5) HUD need for new budget authority is questionable, since it routinely has significant annual unobligated fund balances, has a backlog of at least $1.4 billion in funds that are obligated for public housing modernization ...

Mir Saeed Moosavi & Zhila Darvishi Postin Doz, Islamic Azad University, Tabriz, Iran, ID CLEaR2017-408; Abstract: The changing conditions within cities over time and differences in living conditions between cities suggest that at best these studies provide a crude snapshot of how the mass of urban living conditions at one point in time may be affecting population health, social behavior and communication. Urban green spaces are an integral part of any urban area and their importance is very well known for maintaining the environmental quality, sustainability, social communication as well as population health and wellbeing. Urban green spaces constitute parks, gardens and recreation venues, informal green spaces such as river or sea fronts, green spaces surrounding historical sites, railway corridors and indigenous vegetation types.. The aim of the study is to analyze the relationship between green space and community attachment in urban areas including metropolitan areas in Iran. The detailed ...
31 August 2012 - In early 2012, Trans African Concessions (TRAC), the company responsible for the operation and management of the N4 toll route between the Solomon Mahlangu (formerly Hans Strijdom) off-ramp in Pretoria (Tshwane) and the Port of Maputo in Mozambique, responded to country-wide road accident statistics by resolving to improve pedestrian safety along this route.. More than six months have passed since the inception of TRACs first Community Pedestrian Safety Pilot Project (CPSPP) where Aurecon was appointed to undertake the project design, management and community consultation services. Aurecon also provided funding towards the project implementation within the community as part of its corporate social responsibility initiative. Click here to read more about the project.. "Through the collaboration between TRAC and Aurecon, this highly successful community pedestrian safety project recently reached the final stage of its three phase programme," explains Aurecon Project Manager, ...

The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review with meta-analysis of studies assessing the association between living in an urban environment and the development of the Crohns disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC). A systematic literature search of MEDLINE (1950-Oct. 2009) and EMBASE (1980-Oct. 2009) was conducted to identify studies investigating the relationship between urban environment and IBD. Cohort and case-control studies were analyzed using incidence rate ratio (IRR) or odds ratio (OR) with 95 % confidence intervals (CIs), respectively. Stratified and sensitivity analyses were performed to explore heterogeneity between studies and assess effects of study quality. The search strategy retrieved 6940 unique citations and 40 studies were selected for inclusion. Of these, 25 investigated the relationship between urban environment and UC and 30 investigated this relationship with CD. Included in our analysis were 7 case-control UC studies, 9 case-control CD studies, 18 cohort UC
