ISSUES IN NON-METROPOLITAN GROWTH

SOME URBAN PROBLEMS OF THE LAST DECADE HAVE RESULTED FROM THE FAILURE TO RECOGNIZE PROBLEMS OF THE THIRD OF THE NATION'S POPULATION WHICH STILL LIVES IN RURAL AREAS AND NON-METROPOLITAN CITIES. THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY ON RURAL ECONOMIES AND LIFE HAS OFTEN BEEN IGNORED. GROWTH OF THESE CENTERS MUST BE CONTROLLED AND DIRECTED, "RESPECTING THE GENIUS OF THE PLACE." PLANNING COULD INCLUDE AREAS OF SPECIAL BEAUTY, FRAGILE ECOSYSTEMS, OR HISTORIC IMPORTANCE; AREAS UNIQUELY SUITED TO A PARTICULAR USE, SUCH AS THE CONVERGING OF HIGHWAYS, TO RECREATION, OR TO INDUSTRY; AND AREAS WHERE INTENSIVE URBAN DEVELOPMENT MIGHT BE ENCOURAGED. /DOT/
