RESIDENTIAL LAND USE MODELS WITH APPLICATIONS TO LONG ISLAND

A MULTINOMINAL EXTENSION TO THE ENTROPY-MAXIMIZING METHOD WAS USED TO INVESTIGATE SEVERAL INTERVENING OPPORTUNITIES TYPE MODELS. ONE NEW MACROSCOPIC TYPE MODEL, CALLED THE CLUSTER, OPPORTUNITY AND TREND (COT) MODEL FOR RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNITS, WAS SHOWN TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THE LONG ISLAND, N. Y. RESIDENTIAL LOCATION PROCESS FOR THE 1955 TO 1969 TIME PERIOD. THIS MODEL WAS EXERCISED TO DEVELOP 1980 RESIDENTIAL LAND USE FORECASTS FOR LONG ISLAND. THE COT MODEL ENCOMPASSES THREE INTUTIVE MOTIVATION FACTORS OF THE OWNERS OF NEW DWELLING UNITS. THEY ARE THE DESIRES TO LIVE NEAR OTHER PEOPLE (CLUSTER), TO LIVE WHERE OTHER PEOPLE ARE CURRENTLY LOCATING (TREND), AND TO LIVE RELATIVELY CLOSE (INTERVENING OPPORTUNITIES ARGUMENT) TO A MAJOR CENTER OF ATTRACTION. THE SIMPLICITY OF THE COT MODEL SHOULD ALLOW IT TO BE APPLIED TO MANY OTHER REGIONS OF THE WORLD.
