The Battle For City Hall: What Do We Fight Over?, Louise Simmons Sep 1996

The Battle For City Hall: What Do We Fight Over?, Louise Simmons

New England Journal of Public Policy

An important dimension of contemporary American urban politics involves the redistributive role of local government. Activism at the local level has produced electoral movements that have succeeded in electing progressive local candidates and coalitions, yet on assuming office those officials face tremendous obstacles in meeting the expectations of those who put them in office. From 1991 to 1993 in Hartford, Connecticut, an attempt at progressive governance by a multiracial coalition was fraught with difficulties. Tensions among progressives and among leadership from impoverished communities of color, responses of downtown interests and the media, fiscal crises and the unrelenting needs of the ...


The Clean Water Act: Financing Combined Sewer Overflow Projects, Clyde W. Barrow, William Hogan Sep 1996

The Clean Water Act: Financing Combined Sewer Overflow Projects, Clyde W. Barrow, William Hogan

New England Journal of Public Policy

In 1987 Congress expanded the scope of the Clean Water Act to include combined sewer overflows (CSOs) despite continuing to reduce federal assistance for water-pollution abatement and despite the fact that CSO abatement is far more costly than previous water-quality mandates. As a result, many low-income deindustrializing cities are now subject to an additional federal mandate that many of them cannot afford without extensive federal or state assistance. The authors conclude that, in lieu of increased federal funding for CSO abatement, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulatory guidelines and the Clean Water Act be amended to include an assessment of ...

An Implementation Analysis Of The Day Care Law In The National Capital Region, Vicente C. Reyes Phd

Aside from measuring the influence of the organization and management and the environment of the implementing agencies of the Day Care Law, the study also analyzes the different issues confronting the operations of the day care centers.

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson Jan 1996

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Transboundary environmental problems do not distinguish between political boundaries. Global warming is expected to cause thermal expansion of water and melt glaciers. Both are predicted to lead to a rise in sea level. We must enlarge our paradigms to encompass a global reality and reliance upon global participation.

Economic Development Strategies For The Urban Core Cities Of The Pioneer Valley Region Of Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

This report presents a series of initial strategy recommendations for the economic development of the cities of Springfield and Holyoke. There are six cities in the Pioneer Valley: Springfield, Holyoke, Chicopee, Westfield, Northampton, and Agawam. The three contiguous cities of Springfield, Holyoke, and Chicopee form the urban core of the region. Historically, these cities have been the cultural. financial, and industrial centers of the Pioneer Valley. The scope of this report is limited to the cities of Springfield and Holyoke because these cities face uniquely urban problems that Chicopee, a largely middle class community, does not.

The client for the ...


Public Policy On Local Administration In Hong Kong : Past, Present And Future, Yiu Chung Wong Jan 1996

Public Policy On Local Administration In Hong Kong : Past, Present And Future, Yiu Chung Wong

Centre for Public Policy Studies : CPPS Working Paper Series

This paper attempts to delineate the historical evolution of public policy on local administration (district administration) in Hong Kong. Development since the 1980s will be dealt with, and finally local administration under the Special Administrative Region (SAR) after 1997 will be envisaged. However, in contradistinction to the current usage of the term, I shall use “local administration” in a broader sense, including not only administration at the distinct level but also at the central level. As Hong Kong is a small city, the representative structures of the local administration is closely linked with the system in the central level.


Final Report On The Measurable Indicators Of Economic Success, Center For Economic Development Jan 1996

Final Report On The Measurable Indicators Of Economic Success, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

Across the United States of America people are increasingly interested in ensuring that government expenditures are well spent. We can note this interest at all levels of government ranging from local to national scales. Indeed, increased accountability is a paramount theme of the new Congress. As well, in all of its manifestations, it is a critical element of the "quality movement" that is becoming acculturated in both the private and public sectors.

The notion of accountability implies measurement: In exchange for public tax dollars allocated, increased value will be gained. All government organizations know this intuitively. Yet, few government organizations ...
