Procedural Choices In Regulatory Science, Sheila Jasanoff Mar 1993

Procedural Choices In Regulatory Science, Sheila Jasanoff

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)

This paper compares four approaches to using science in regulatory decision making - one very similar to the Science Court proposal. Professor Jasanoff argues generally that that proposal would be less useful than procedures more sensitive to the distinctive characteristics of regulatory science.


The Science Court: Reminiscence And Retrospective, Allan Mazur Mar 1993

The Science Court: Reminiscence And Retrospective, Allan Mazur

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)

A self-described "agnostic" on the merits of the Science Court proposal describes how he independently arrived at a similar notion and played a role in efforts to secure a major test of the proposal. Professor Mazur also analyzes university-based experiments structured around that model and concludes that the controversial "judges" are probably unnecessary to achieve his original objectives.

Inventory Of Industrial Property Executive Summary Franklin County, Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development Jan 1993

Inventory Of Industrial Property Executive Summary Franklin County, Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

It is not uncommon for cities and towns to actively seek economic and industrial development in times of economic stress. However, the desire to promote industrial activity and broaden the tax base is often left to the government or the town leaders. Town residents do not necessarily share this vision of development with town government. Industry, especially in rural Massachusetts, is still perceived as belching smokestacks creating myriad environmental problems.

Although a large number of towns wish to broaden the tax base and share the tax burden with new development, few have positioned themselves well to gain from or proactively ...

A Revitalization Study Main Street Returns For The Future Gardner, Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

This Regional Planning studio project was undertaken for the Gardner Industrial Foundation ("the Foundation").

The Site, containing mostly vacant manufacturing facilities, is a large and visually significant part of the downtown area.

Developing A Local Organizational Structure For Industrial Development, Center For Economic Development Jan 1993

Developing A Local Organizational Structure For Industrial Development, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

Many communities in Massachusetts currently utilize a variety of publicly-funded economic development organizations that help to generate and maintain economic activity and growth. Given the importance of economic development to cities and towns that are currently facing high unemployment rates, eroding tax bases and vacant space, it is crucial that these organizations operate effectively and receive the support necessary to continue their operations.

To date, however, the performance of many of these organizations has not been evaluated in a systematic manner, and the extent of their effectiveness is unknown. Only through a formal evaluation process can it be determined if ...
