Journal of Planning Literature, 2005Co-Authors: Nancey Green LeighAbstract:
Strengthening the effectiveness of metropolitan smart growth policies requires an understanding of the role and conditions of inner ring Suburbs. Nevertheless, the issue of the deterioration of the inner ring Suburbs has only recently received significant consideration by urban scholars and policy makers. In this article, the authors review the literature on metropolitan formation and the smart growth movement to critically assess how well it characterizes and explains the evolution of inner ring Suburbs, as well as to emphasize the role that inner ring Suburbs can play in metropolitan smart growth strategies. They next characterize the literature specifically focused on inner ring Suburbs in terms of what it has to offer on defining such areas. After identifying the gaps in the literature, the authors offer a methodology for accurately defining inner ring Suburbs and conclude with a discussion of policy for effectively addressing the socioeconomic needs of the inner ring Suburbs within the context of met...

Housing Policy Debate, 2020Co-Authors: Bernadette HanlonAbstract:
This article develops an index of suburban decline for 3,428 U.S. Suburbs. The results of this index were used to measure the prevalence and extent of decline for older, inner Suburbs and newer Suburbs across the nation and in different regions from 1980 to 2000. The general pattern is one of decline in selected older, inner Suburbs, especially those with housing built between 1950 and 1969 and those with increasing minority populations. Regional analysis reveals that the South and the Midwest had the highest proportion of older, inner Suburbs in crisis. Suburbs with housing built before 1939 emerged as areas of continuing affluence.

City & Community, 2009Co-Authors: Bernadette HanlonAbstract:
Inner-ring Suburbs initially built in the postwar period and before have evolved into places with varied characteristics, assets, and problems. Analyzing a sample of 1,742 inner-ring Suburbs nationwide, this article identifies five different types: “vulnerable;”“ethnic;”“lower income and mixed;”“old;” and “middle class.” This typology indicates that inner-ring Suburbs, often perceived as homogenous entities, are in fact places largely differentiated by issues of class, race, and ethnicity. As this article demonstrates, the identification of these different types of inner-ring Suburbs reveals much about suburban transformation, stability, and decline in the United States.
Urban Geography, 2007Co-Authors: Bernadette Hanlon, Thomas J. VicinoAbstract:
This paper analyzes the transformation of Baltimore's inner Suburbs from 1980 to 2000. After developing a geographic definition of inner Suburbs, we then spatially analyze them using census place-level data. The analysis shows evidence of socioeconomic decline in Baltimore's inner Suburbs, but the extent of this decline varies among these Suburbs. Since 1980, many declining inner Suburbs had difficulty attracting new residents, White flight was the prevailing trend, and the housing stock was outdated relative to the outer Suburbs. The analysis suggests three major influences on decline among the inner Suburbs of Baltimore: labor market restructuring, the nature of the local housing market, and income and racial segregation. This paper concludes with a classification of Baltimore's inner Suburbs based on our understanding of the processes of suburban decline in the region.

ABSTRACTOver the past several decades, researchers have investigated segregation, differentiating between central cities and Suburbs. However, Suburbs have become more differentiated. Using Census 2000, Census 2010, and American Community Survey (ACS) data for 2007–2011, this article analyzes segregation in the 100 most populous metropolitan statistical areas in the United States, differentiating between central cities, mature Suburbs, and developing Suburbs. For each subgeography, we consider the racial and ethnic proportions, the dissimilarity index for each combination of racial and ethnic groups, and the isolation index for each racial and ethnic group. We find that Black–White and Latino–White dissimilarity levels in mature Suburbs are closer to the corresponding levels in central cities. From 2000 to 2010, Black–White segregation indices decreased for all subgeographies in all regions and Latino–White segregation indices increased for all subgeographies in Census Region South. The findings for the d...
2009Co-Authors: Katrin B. AnackerAbstract:
Recently, many mature Suburbs have become concerned that history will repeat itself and they will see the same decline that central cities have witnessed. This study uses mixed methods to create a definition of mature Suburbs, to provide an overview of public policies that benefit homeowners in mature Suburbs, to analyze how property values of single family homes in mature Suburbs have behaved, and to analyze what specific factors have influenced property values of single family homes in mature Suburbs compared with those in central cities and developing Suburbs. Three counties in Ohio are examined: Cuyahoga (Cleveland area), Franklin (Columbus area), and Hamilton (Cincinnati area). Quantitative analyses of the mature Suburbs in the study show that there is no overall suburban decline in terms of property values, although some communities should be concerned with their appreciation rates. Housing space and adjacency to work places and transportation networks matter. Expert interviews reveal that despite the common perception of a policy blindspot some policies do benefit homeowners in mature Suburbs.
Housing Policy Debate, 2008Co-Authors: Katrin B. Anacker, Hazel A MorrowjonesAbstract:
For most U.S. homeowners, a home represents the biggest investment they will ever make, and until recently, most expected the value of their property to rise. If the mature Suburbs in which many of these homeowners live have problems or are in decline, property values could decrease and investment value will be lost. We define mature Suburbs for Cuyahoga County, OH (the Cleveland area), and analyze the property values of single‐family homes there. We examine how property values have behaved in mature Suburbs compared with the central city and developing Suburbs and analyze specific factors that have influenced the property value of single‐family homes in these three submarkets from 1985 to 2000. Our analyses show that there is no overall decline in nominal property values. Housing space, nearness to workplaces and transportation networks, and tax rates are important variables in the model, affecting mature Suburbs and developing Suburbs differently.

Suburbs, which is impacted by urbanization , shows a process of dynamic change as an extremely instable region. The paper discusses the characteristics of rural tourism in Suburbs and emphases on analyzing the urbanization's impact on life cycle of rural tourism in Suburbs by the theories of life cycle model and urbanization. Finally, the paper summarizes the evolution law of rural tourism in Suburbs,and obtains enlightenment of the development and plan.

Urban Forum, 2014Co-Authors: Liza Rose CiroliaAbstract:
Much of the current planning discourse has come to reject master planned ‘new cities’ as both unrealistic and undesirable. However, with growing urbanisation challenges in the Global South, master planned cities, Suburbs and communities have come back on the agenda driven by both public and private interests. This paper explores the WesCape Development (WD), a proposed satellite suburb to be located north-west of Cape Town, South Africa. Situating the WD in a longer lineage of utopian and new city planning approaches, I argue that the proposal is deeply flawed. Rather than being the solution to the urban ills facing Cape Town, it is an ‘anti-urban’ strategy which supports suburbanisation and assumes a particular and problematic urban growth scenario. It relies on ‘environmentally deterministic’ assumptions and depoliticised and deinstitutionalised designs. Ultimately, it tries to escape, rather than confront, the operational, political and social challenges of the city leading to the devaluation of planning instruments and citizenship engagement. The WD highlights the importance and power of radical and utopian thinking as well as the necessity of grounding and situating these impulses in the specificities and complexities of the city.
