This ordinance establishes a farmland preservation board that reviews and approves applications for the formation of farmland districts for the purpose of their maintenance and preservation in the presence of ongoing forestry activities.
This report is a follow-up to a previous study by the Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD), Rails to Real Estate: Development Patterns Along Three Recently Constructed Rail Lines. It revisits the three regions explored in Rails to Real Estate to take a closer look at where development did and did not occur in terms of eight development contexts that are commonly found around transit stations. In addition, it provides a more detailed look at the opportunities and challenges involved in fostering transit-oriented development in different types of neighborhoods, and discusses strategies that may be appropriate for catalyzing transportation-oriented development (TOD) depending on the development context.
Despite providing a valuable and necessary service to society, domestic workers are not given the pay, protections, or respect that they deserve. For reasons that can be traced back to the slave-era, a large proportion of the domestic work industry is made up of Black women, which leads them to face the brunt of this exploitation. By telling the stories of Black female domestic workers from Georgia and North Carolina, this report outlines the maltreatment they face and how they rally to fight for better working conditions through the “We Dream in Black” organization.
This report documents real estate development patterns along three recently constructed light rail transit lines in the United States: the Hiawatha Line in Minnesota, the Southeast Corridor in Colorado, and the Blue Line in North Carolina. Specifically, this report aims to give regions with planned or new light rail corridors a better sense of what to expect in terms of new development (based on actual experiences in regions with new transit lines), offer insight about the factors influencing development patterns near transit (as well as how the public sector can assist in realizing the market potential for transit-oriented development), and test analytical methods that are used by planners to identify areas that are more likely to redevelop or that are seen as better locations for transit-oriented development.
