SATELLITE COMMUNITIES

ALTHOUGH LAND ACQUISITION IS CONSIDERED THE KEY IN DEVELOPING NEW SATELLITE COMMUNITIES, SOCIAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS MIGRATION, POLLUTION, TRANSPORTATION, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND SEGREGATION ARE DISCUSSED. METHODS INVOLVING LAND ACQUISITION, BOTH BY PRIVATE AND PUBLIC MEANS, ARE PRESENTED, INCLUDING GRANTS, LOANS, ETC., TO FINANCE MODEL PROJECTS. FINALLY THE PROS AND CONS OF A CURRENTLY NONEXISTENT, ALTHOUGH BADLY NEEDED, FORMALIZED U. S. LAND USE POLICY IS DEBATED; AN OVERALL PLAN FOR METROPOLITAN AREAS IS URGED SINCE THESE ARE THE AREAS THAT WOULD BENEFIT THE MOST IN TERMS OF IMPROVEMENTS, FOR INSTANCE IN THE MASS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS THAT WOULD SERVE AS CATALYSTS BETWEEN THE SATELLITE COMMUNITIES AND THE REST OF THE CITY.
