MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines what four international and four domestic airports and their environs are doing to spur economic development. Each case study will include information on the types of planning and organizational structure taken, as well as any policies implemented. Examples given provide unique insights by which airports and the communities around them collaborated on the land use, urban design and transportation planning areas as well as the tools used to achieve desired results. The branding, marketing and economic development strategies of these areas are also explored. This paper begins with a review of existing literature on airport-area land use development and a description of the derived problem statement and research questions. The paper outlines the methodology of research and looks at all eight case studies, in addition to existing conditions in Atlanta. The paper concludes with recommendations and tools for Atlanta.
