URBAN GROWTH AND DECLINE
Transcript of URBAN GROWTH AND DECLINE
When the standard of living increases simultaneously with the increase of population. This is the attribution of growth in building such as homes, shops and work places. This also causes more employment and homes that are affordable thus resulting in a more desirable place to live in.
When a city lacks investment and is maintained poorly causing it to collapse. This results in a large percentage of unemployment, low economic performance and inadequate housing and health facilities.
Urban Growth: Because of the growth of population, traffic will begin to be apart of the daily lives of people who live in consistently growing urban areas.
Waste management will be a situation that will gradually become something difficult to cope with. Areas of urban growth will also attract crime and pollution.
Because cities are growing outwards it will begin to hit rural areas which will affect the natural environment. There will be disruptions in the ecosystems and destruction in habitats.
Urban Decline: When a city begins to deteriorate and is no longer appealing to live in social, economical and environmental issues will be present.
There will be poor maintenance and a lack of investment which can cause poverty.
There will be less opportunities in employment, bad quality health services and residential buildings, vandalism, it causes rough patches in families financially and it will be harder for parents to provide and educational resources will be inadequate.
The geographical issue is well managed and all strategies listed were successful to an extent, it prevented urban decline, improved the environment, alerted people to be aware with how they use water and energy and how to manage their waste, but traffic is still an issue that is more difficult to fix for it is becoming over populated in cities like Sydney and Melbourne.
URBAN GROWTH AND DECLINE
How individuals managed the geographical issue:
In areas that are car-dependent, carpools would be formed which would usually cut down traffic, save fuel and money and is also a faster way for everyone to go to and from work all at once. Pollution is reduced after individuals began using bicycles or walk as an alternate way to reach places. To recycle water and use renewable energy people would install water tanks and solar panels into their own homes.
The Central Business District
A residential area in Sydney.
This used to be a successful office building in Detroit, now it lives next to a dumpster.
A neighborhood street in Detroit.
How organizations managed the geographical issue:
National Road and Motorists' Association work to improve roads in more populated areas to make it easier, faster and safer to travel. Environmental groups are trying to create new strategies helping waste management and the efficient use of water and energy. Public transport is also being improved with The Action for Public Transport by making it easier and faster for the public and more organized for the people working behind the whole industry of public transport. Also, the City West Community Financial Services Ltd. has the goal to sustain a strong community making sure no one will have to struggle in that sense (financially).
How the government managed the geographical issue:
Urban growth is being controlled and managed by the local council to make sure it is done wisely and affects very little to the environment. The federal government have given the state government a large amount of funds to provide quality buildings and roads in cities. The government also collaborates with smaller organizations by approving and improving their ideas.
