Abstract:
Urban planner Thomas Campanella has documented the urban transformation in China since the early 1990s. Rapid modernization results from the desire for a better quality of life, but has consequences of air pollution, health problems, and exploitation of rural migrants. According to Robin Visser, who studies Chinese culture, there is a growing movement toward sustainable development.

Abstract:
The Triangle area is often referred to as a region, but the towns and cities which make up the Triangle area have yet to cooperate like one. The area is facing major transportation and water pollution problems and the area towns and politicians blame each other. Looking at model areas where regional planning has worked, experts believe the Triangle could easily solve their problems if they worked together. This piece was written by the Independent's Editorial staff.

Abstract:
Urban planner Dan Douglas has a vision to stimulate Raleigh’s development that is based on designs from major European cities. Douglas’ plan would see various groups in Raleigh donate 120 acres of vacant or underutilized land to Capital City Partners. The group would then take the land and hold an international plan to produce the best possible masterplan for downtown development. This could include new public squares, transit stations, high-tech businesses, high-density, affordable housing, and arts and cultural hubs. The number of jobs downtown could double and the number of people living downtown could increase by 10 times the current amount.

Abstract:
The runner up for this issue's cover is a photograph of a century-old building in New Bern, adorned with a mural of a rising phoenix. Situated between the communities of Duffyfield, Dryborough and the more affluent downtown historic district, this building survived a 1922 fire that decimated the two neighborhoods; and now stands as a symbol of towns commitment to the growth of these communities.

Abstract:
Urban planning experts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill report that population and economic growth have left many cities and towns in the Southeast with inadequate water supply and sewer systems. They attribute this condition more to a lack of planning and realistic pricing than a lack of ability to pay for the necessary facilities. Municipalities are trying to cope with growth pressures through conservation and postponed expansion, and by shifting financial burden to the private sector.

Abstract:
A lot of renovation work was invested in the transformation of a parking lot into a city park. Including elements such as a clock, type of tree imported from Italy, and Spartanburg County medallion map made the ten year venture a labor of love.

Abstract:
This nonprofit organization, established nearly a decade earlier, sustained success due to its celebration, education, and advocacy of life on two wheels for both urban and commuter cyclists. Events included coordinating community rides such as the Bike of the Irish. Lobbying for transportation policy changes yielded the Hominy Creek Greenway and the non-profit’s collaboration with the city council in the creation of Asheville’s Comprehensive Bicycle Plan.
