1. Carrillo, Jeffrey Adam. Potential barriers to affordable housing for immigration of lower-income residents in land use plans of suburban towns in the Austin MSA.

Degree: Community and Regional Planning, 2014, University of Texas – Austin

This study examines the readiness of suburban towns in Austin for the potential development of affordable and low-income housing through their comprehensive plans and land use policies. The study consists of four sections: an overview of the greater Austin MSA and the developing poverty in the suburban areas, a literature review of the effects of local land use policies on affordable housing production and development, the establishment of a “best practices” metric for local land use policies amenable to affordable housing production, and application of the metric to four localities in the Austin MSA, including Elgin, Dripping Springs, Kyle, and Georgetown. The findings reveal primarily low scores overall for the four localities, and expose the challenges suburban jurisdictions in a high-growth MSA in Texas face when addressing the needs of increasing low-income residents, and display best practices that localities with successful methods use to address those needs. Advisors/Committee Members: Mueller, Elizabeth J. (advisor).

2. Neel, Phillip. Logistics Cities: Poverty, Immigration and Employment in Seattle’s Southern Suburbs.

Degree: 2016, University of Washington

Despite its reputation as a "post-industrial" metropolis, parts of Seattle have either become or remained devoted to manufacturing and logistics. Theories of migration and industrial development that emphasize employment in services, information technology and hi-tech production in American cities tend to obscure patterns of re-industrialization and obscure areas in which de-industrialization never “finished” or simply never quite took place. Against readings that conceptualize American cities’ industrial and demographic changes as components of “neoliberalism” or a new phenomenon of “globalization,” I explore industrial and demographic shifts in the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue Metropolitan Statistical Area as local expressions of long-form, always-global capitalist development trends, in which ever-expanding value generation via traditionally productive industries remains a central necessity. Using the most recent US Census, State Employment Security Department and Department of Transportation data, I quantify and map the extension of this global productive infrastructure into the Seattle region. I then document the geographic overlap of this productive infrastructure with new suburban zones of high poverty and high foreign-born settlement and quantify the dependence between these suburban residential tracts and their neighboring industrial tracts using origin-destination data on industry. The result is a picture of the “logistics cities” that exist within “postindustrial” Seattle. Advisors/Committee Members: Bergmann, Luke R (advisor).

3. Weimers, Brenda Ruby. Recreation provision by local government to address the manifestations of poverty .

Degree: 2012, University of Johannesburg

One of the tasks of local government has always been to provide services which will ensure the well-being of its communities. Given the history of the legacy of apartheid, however, it becomes imperative that local governments' responsibility transcends to a new role of socio-economic development designed to address the manifestations of poverty which were caused by the repressive apartheid policy and which currently permeate South African society. Issues such as literacy, malnutrition, low standards of education and training levels, welfare dependency, violence and crime are some of the manifestations of poverty that warrant attention from local government. The White Paper on Local Government as well as other government initiatives have set a framework of a developmental local government and this study seeks to discover whether recreation, as one of the social sectors of a multi-sectoral local government, fulfils this requirement. Qualitative methods were employed to examine and analyse the provision of recreation by local government with the aim of discovering whether this provision addresses some of the manifestations of poverty. The technique of a case study was utilised to focus on the provision of recreation by local government to the Zakariyya Park locality and by so doing, to achieve greater insight into local governments' recreation provision. Advisors/Committee Members: Prof. C. Burnett, Prof. W.J. Hollander (advisor).
