Community Planning and Area Development
This Master's Research Project examines the manner in which the City of Providence reviewed a development strategy prepared by consultants for its downtown, and attempted to generate proposals for a fresh approach to central city planning and management. A profile of the existing political milieu and economic environment are furnished as a context for critiquing the consultants' report and the City's response to their findings. Case studies of alternative methods for promoting public-private partnerships in central cities are then analyzed as a basis for the development of a prototypical planning and management entity tailored to the needs of downtown Providence, Rhode Island.
