The Influence on Rural Communities of Interurban Transportation Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This research project, "The Influence on Rural Communities of Inter-Urban Transportation Systems," was one of five conducted under the general title, "Transportation to Fulfill Human Needs in a Rural/Urban Environment. "The research is documented in two volumes: Volume I "The Influence on Rural Communities of Interurban Transportation Systems," and Volume II "Transportation and Community Development: A Manual for Small Communities." The first volume is the description of the study process and the findings of the various research phases during the project. This document would be of interest to professional planners in regional governments having small, rural communities within their jurisdiction. The report may aid in facilitating their interactions with representatives of smaller cities and enhance their appreciation of the uniqueness of those areas as reflected in their needs and issues. The set of planning guides contained in Volume II would be of interest to the community representatives. The guides are designed for the layperson and are written in non-technical language. The purpose of the manual is to promote a more informed participation in the national, state, and regional decision making process as it relates to transportation, and to provide the basis for initiating and continuing comprehensive local planning for small urban places (cities and towns with a population of 25,000 or less).
