I am looking for information regarding the
security of greenspaces (urban gardens, forests, etc) that are located in high
crime areas. I am doing some research for Wayne State University (Detroit
MI)-Center for Urban Labor and Metropolitan Affairs. My thesis is for the
reforestation of blighted commercial strips in certain areas of the city that
have seen great disinvestment over the last three decades.
The criticism is that the areas will attract
crime or will be unsafe in comparison to other blighted areas with dilapidated,
abandonded buildings, or vacant property. Do you have any information that
would be helpful to defend my case. Other case studies would be ideal, but
Thanks for your help with this...
