Blog Spotlight: Shrinking Cities

Check out Shrinking Cities from Virginia Tech’s Dept. of Urban Affairs and Planning.

The blog comes from the Shrinking Cities – Sustainability studio in Virginia Tech’s School of Urban Affairs and Planning, Alexandria Campus.

It  “aim(s) to explore the opportunities and challenges of shrinking cities in the context of contemporary urban planning. We will evaluate strategies and commentary on shrinking cities, including urban agriculture, storm water infrastructure, pocket parks, vacant property reclamation, land banks and community energy generation.”

Lots of good stuff here on Baltimore, Cleveland, Youngstown and more.
