Sustainable City Network Magazine, Vol. 9, is a compilation of the most popular articles on sCityNetwork.com in the third quarter of 2013. (PDF)
In this issue, we explore the problem of property abandonment facing many “legacy cities” across the United States. Perhaps hardest hit has been the city of Detroit, which leads the nation with an estimated 79,000 vacant homes. Our two-part story (one printed in this issue and another online), includes interviews with Dr. June Manning Thomas and Dr. Margaret Dewar, who recently co-edited the book The City After Abandonment (The City in the 21st Century). The book brings together essays from top urban planning experts to focus on policy and planning issues related to this difficult issue.
