Abstract

This study has focused its attention on the conceptual theories of clustering in relation to the actual practices, which are occurring today in Rhode Island. The study provides a historical framework for the cluster process and subsequently describes the following components: cluster characteristics in Rhode Island communities, open space, management, legal constraints, cost and a visual analysts. All of the chapters begin with a general discussion, which provides a framework for the Rhode Island cluster experience.
