A CITIZEN'S GUIDE TO CLEAN AIR AND TRANSPORTATION: IMPLICATIONS FOR URBAN REVITALIZATION

This guide explains the process by which Congress and public officials would like air quality and transportation planning to be conducted. The goals of the process described here are clean air, efficient use of federal assistance, and the economic and cultural revitalization of cities. The general topics addressed in this report include: health and economic effects of air pollution; air pollution legislation and controls on automobile use enacted by Congress to improve air quality; a new approach to transportation planning, which consists of a "3 c process" (a "continuing, cooperative, comprehensive" process) to be established by local officials and state transportation planning agencies; Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977; and use of existing laws to yield opportunities for urban revitalization through various programs such as automobile management, promotion of public transit, transportation system management, development of a shopping mall policy, and promotion of bicycle use.
