Old Cities/Green Cities; Communities Transform Unmanged Land
J. Blaine Bohnham, Jr
APA Planning Advisory Service
This report was developed out of a series of documents on urban vacant
land by one of the leading gorups in the country dealing with this
issue--the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, which also supported the
color printing in this report.
Part 1 of the report addresses the neighborhood resource; large-scale
greening systems; and the link between urban renewal and sprawl.
Part 2 provides an in-depth look at some PHS programs, including the
rebirth of the New Kensington Philadelphia neighborhood and the Green
City Strategy employed by the City of Philadelphia. An appendix
provides a list of contacts to the many Community Development
Corporations active in the area of urban greening in cities throughout
the United States.
