This is a timely work on a very dynamic field. It provides more than 40 best practice case studies from nearly half the states in America, and discusses current and evolving trends in the relations between educational institutions and cities, towns and other municipalities. The schools include public and private universities and colleges, public school districts, and other local school systems. Case studies examine current and evolving state-of-the-art practices. Appendices include a glossary; regional, national and international resource directories; bibliographic sources; model agreements and documents; a state municipal league directory; a state public library directory; and a summary of distance learning resources. The handbook is indexed. The future of America's cities and schools depends upon the proper management of resources through the use of state-of-the-art town-gown planning practices. Both public officials and taxpayers, faculties, as well as students, benefit from town and gown best practices.

Droughts, global warming and rising infrastructure costs have brought new attention to water as both an urban planning and an environmental issue. This volume presents many best-practice case studies to show how cities and towns throughout the United States are restoring their wetlands, watersheds, rivers, beaches, and harbors even as rapid urbanization has put more stress on water supplies. These collected accounts are designed to educate citizens and public officials about water-related issues and future concerns. Regional and national resource directories are included.

Corruption is a chronic public concern affecting America's cities. Greed, ethical lapses and lack of accountability have drained untold millions in tax dollars. Corrupt practices range from embezzlement, graft, bribery, kickbacks, extortion, nepotism and patronage to the misuse of funds, vehicles, equipment, supplies and other public resources. Court proceedings to investigate and prosecute perpetrators add to the cost. Media exposes have magnified the spectacle of abusive and unethical government. This book investigates the reasons behind corruption and imparts guidelines for better accountability.

This is a handbook of international best practices on how cities throughout the world have improved their transportation options provided to their citizens. Roadways for cars are bring turned into walkways and bikeways, light-rail transit systems have been installed to reduce traffic and pollution, and more citizens are riding bikes and walking. In the olden days our cities were designed by cars for cars. Nowadays our cities are being designed, redesigned, and improved for the people who live there - citizens. Many communities throughout the world have decreased their reliance on the personal car, have promoted transit options, and have enhanced their urban environment by reducing traffic, congestion, pollution, and the number and width of their roadways. Many citizens in cities throughout the world don't even need a car, since so many other transit options are available to them. The 40 best practice case studies contained in this volume are from 33 states and provinces in 19 countries located on six continents - from all over the world! Each best practice case study contains the official name of the municipality, it's latest population figure, the region it is located in, the province or state that it is located in, the common name of the country that it is located in, the official name of the country that it is located in, and the community's official website.
