NEIGHBORHOOD PROTEST OF AN URBAN HIGHWAY

URBAN HIGHWAYS ARE OFTEN PLANNED THROUGH LOW- AND LOWER-MIDDLE INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS. THE SOCIAL CHARACTER OF SUCH NEIGHBORHOODS IS PROBABLY MISUNDERSTOOD BY MANY PLANNERS, WHO ALSO TEND TO INTERPRET MINIMAL RESISTANCE TO PLANS AS INDIFFERENCE OR EVEN ACCEPTANCE. THE CASE STUDY OUTLINED HERE DEMONSTRATES THE SOCIAL RICHNESS AND COMPLEXITY OF SUCH AN AREA. IT ALSO SUGGESTS THAT IGNORANCE OF EFFECTIVE PROTEST TECHNIQUES, DISBELIEF IN THE POSSIBILITY OF AFFECTING DECISION MAKERS, AND A GENERAL DESPAIR OVER THE THREAT OF FORCED RELOCATION ACCOUNT FOR LOW PARTICIPATION IN A PROTEST MOVEMENT. /AUTHOR/
