America's Downtowns Growth, Politics & Preservation Policies that shape urban growth are critical to the future of the American preservation movement and America's cities. America's Downtowns explores local growth management policies and preservation issues in 10 major cities across America -- Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Denver, Jersey City, Philadelphia, Roanoke, St. Paul, San Francisco, and Seattle. Each of these cities has experimented with goals and strategies designed to help it increase the attractiveness of its downtown through historic preservation. This book provides an in-depth look into ways preservation values can be integrated into local policies that shape growth and development.
