COLLOQUIUM SERIES Region by Design: Public Policy and the Making of Southern California Jennifer Wolch University of Southern California In this way, L.A.’s story is not unlike that of other major metropolitan regions in the U.S. But southern California’s unique geography — its topography, hazards and climate, its far-flung polycentric urban form — as well as its demographic diversity, byzantine system of governance, dispersed power structures and dynamic economy can make interpretation of the region as well as the design and execution of specific planning objectives very difficult indeed. Differences between southern California and other metro areas also mean that current nationwide calls for “smart growth” policies may need some alteration to effectively moderate inequities, slow sprawl and promote more livable communities in the southern California region. 1080 Derby Hall

Dateline: 02/15/99 French geographer Jean Gottmann (1915-1994) studied the northeastern United States during the 1950s and published a book in 1961 that described the region as a vast metropolitan area over 300 miles long stretching from Boston in the north to Washington, D.C. in the south. This area (and the title of Gottmann's book) is "Megalopolis." The term Megalopolis is derived from Greek and means "very large city." A group of Ancient Greeks actually planned to construct a huge city on the Peloponnese Peninsula. Their plan didn't work out but the small city of Megalopolis was constructed and exists to this day. Gottmann's Megalopolis (sometimes referred to as BosWash for the northern and southern tips of the area) is a very large functional urban region that "provides the whole of America with so many essential services, of the sort a community used to obtain in its 'downtown' section, that it may well deserve the nickname of 'Main Street of the nation.'" (Gottmann, 8) The Megalopolitan area of BosWash is a governmental center, banking center, media center, academic center, and until recently, an immigration center (a position usurped by Los Angeles in recent years).

Elsewhere on the Web NYC Zoning History Zoning Law FAQ by Matt Rosenberg While European cities in the late 19th century developed the controls that would later evolve into what is known today as zoning, New York City developed the first zoning ordinance in 1916. New York's 1916 Zoning Resolution established height and setback controls on buildings and separated incompatible uses to stop the encroachment of industry into Manhattan's office and department store district. As skyscrapers became popular at the beginning of the 20th century, New Yorkers complained about the negative impact of the buildings' ability to block sunlight. The zoning ordinance specified that buildings would be shaped like a wedding cake and taper toward the top in a stair-step style. Later zoning ordinances and building regulations changed the size and shape of buildings in the city over the following decades. Many cities followed New York's lead in establishing zoning ordinances and excluding obnoxious or incompatible uses from residential areas, protecting property values and thus changing the value of land based upon the zoning qualifications. The town of Euclid, Ohio passed a zoning ordinance that resulted in devaluation of 68 acres of land owned by Ambler Realty Company. The company sued the town, claiming that their land was taken in violation of the

Learning Goals

State Goal 14 - 14 A, C, D, E

State Goal 15 - 15 A, E, D

Unit 1: What Is A Community? (one - two weeks)
  • The students learn to describe some features of a community and to explain what different people in a community do. (Any speaker lists about current community jobs that make the community run would be a great resource - even just job titles so that teachers could make contact). List some ways that early settlers worked together. (Jobs of the early settlers would be helpful so that we could compare how they have changed today). The book wants students to describe how changes in transportation changed in Indianapolis. (It would be more helpful if they could learn about the transportation changes in their own community). Students learn some reasons that communities might form links to one another. They then compare the cultures of one community with the culture of another. (We have three sister cities in this area from Russia, England, and Japan - it would be nice to have a listing of things to compare. I am sure other communities have Sister Cities and would like more information about them also). The feature focus of this unit is to help students construct and illustrate ways to show knowledge of communities and to classify date in categories for map keys. (Any old maps of the area and keys so the children can compare with the progress of the communities today would be helpful)

    Moscow Place Names Here is an article which tries to explain why places in the US were called Moscow . You can see that it is a very complicated task. I don't expect you to provide this level of details in Project #2, but do try to make some sense of the data. Enjoy the place name assignment. U.S. Places Called Moscow
    Irina Vasiliev, Department of Geography, Syracuse University This paper examines naming patterns for the Moscows in the United States . Since 1800, 49 populated places have been named Moscow in the United States. Many have disappeared or changed their names. Today, there are 27. Not all of the Moscows are connected to each other. Some belong to groups that relate to a central notion from which spokes radiate to each place. Others are linked by a form of place-name genealogy by which a linear structure describes the relationships among the Moscow points. For others, the links are unknown, but, even for these, the name Moscow summons the impression of a cultured, mature city, characteristics entirely lacking in the new Moscows of the l800s in the interior of the United States. Napoleon's Influence Moscows of American Origin When the village became large enough to have a post office, the name had to be changed because another Greenville, in Texas, already had a post office. So, in memory of David Green's home in Tennessee, the post office was named Moscow (Heritage 1978). The follow-the-dot pattern is fragmented for these transferred Moscows one or two-maybe three-places linked to each other at a time. Not a very cohesive group as a single unit but certainly a group of similar stories deserving of a classification category of their invoking the image of Moscow of the rest of the Moscows, a large group was named simply for the Russian city. Often in the l9th century, exotic names were popular as many new communities popped up across the country. Post office regulations required that there be only one of each place name in a state (Stewart 1970).

    The work of others tends to be invisible until you take on the task yourself! The task of Chair of the Urban Geography Specialty Group has now become all too visible to me, and I want to thank Judith Kenny for her hard work over the past few years. A sudden medical emergency prevented Margaret Hudson from finalizing this newsletter, but I thank her for gathering together the material for this newsletter and wish her a speedy recovery. Thanks also to Eugene McCann for stepping into the void and producing yet another newsletter on short notice. Of more immediate concern, I encourage everyone to consider organizing urban-themed sessions for the meetings in New Orleans. We sponsored 57 sessions at the Los Angeles meetings (with the skillful coordination of Karen Till and Margaret Hudson); some calls for papers follow within this newsletter. Board members, Steve Holloway and David Prytherch, have agreed to coordinate the specialty group sponsorship of sessions, so please contact them with ideas about sessions, requests for sponsorship, or an update of session themes. The deadline for submitting abstracts to the AAG is September 30. For now, I do hope that you are enjoying the last days of summer.

    George Washington felt that canals offered the young nation the best hope of linking its regions into a united country. Although he never traveled to Indiana, he was a surveyor and always had a keen interest in geography and canals. He was the first to suggest that a canal might be built to connect the waters of the St. Lawrence via the Great Lakes with those of the Mississippi river. The connective passage for this link was a seven mile area between the Maumee river and the Little river at Fort Wayne. This historic "Glorious Gate" was used by Native Americans and the early French voyagers. In southeastern Indiana the Whitewater river, which flows into the Ohio near Cincinnati, also offered a natural route for taking goods to market. The problem there was the "white water." The rapids in the river made it largely unnavigable to commercial boat traffic. Canals offered the answer to a cheap, reliable transportation system and were built to open the Indiana frontier. With pick and shovel the natural geography could be modified to provide a manmade waterway that would be accessible almost year round. Canals allowed boats to go more than one direction. Goods could flow to eastern markets via Lake Erie and the Erie Canal of New York. Manufactured goods could be brought back to the growing state. Compared with railroads, canals could be built with native materials and the cash expended locally instead of flowing to outside interests or even out of the country. In the case of railroads, both the steam engines and the rails had to be imported.
