URP 525 – Regional Planning

Description

This graduate course provides an introduction to regional planning, development and analysis. The regionalist tradition represents a distinctive worldview to analyze metropolitan development, envision alternative conceptions and scales of community, and structure institutional responses to environmental, economic and social challenges. We examine the history, institutional practices, idealism and limitations of regional planning. Regional efforts have alternately targeted economic, environmental and social equity goals. Themes include regional economic development, land preservation, regional sustainability efforts, city-suburb relations, water resource management, megaregions, and transportation infrastructure. Case studies may include New York, Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Portland, Metro Detroit, EU regionalism and Asian megaregions.
