  4. Urban Politics Revisited: A Policy-centered Look at Local Political Ecologies [Download]

    Title: Urban Politics Revisited: A Policy-centered Look at Local Political Ecologies
    Author: Stone, Clarence
    Description: This paper elaborates the policy-centered research program proposed by Hacker and Pierson (2014) by exploring how policy-centered research contributes to an understanding of urban politics and how the urban subfield contributes to a policy-centered research program. Using a bi-level analysis of the drug war and local union organizing, we highlight the local consequences of national policies and show that the consequences of national initiatives vary substantially, particularly for marginalized groups.

  5. Homestead Exemptions and Credits: An Examination of an Approach for Tax Expenditure Budgeting [Download]

    Title: Homestead Exemptions and Credits: An Examination of an Approach for Tax Expenditure Budgeting
    Author: Collins, Catherine
    Description: Homestead exemption programs, incorporating exemptions and credits, are by no means the only programs state and local governments use to provide property tax relief to residents. They are, however, the only programs directed at all homeowners who claim the property as their primary residence . Unlike the other residential relief programs, homestead exemptions have no further eligibility criteria. While all states provide some sort of residential relief, as shown in Table 1, only 28 states and the District of Columbia have adopted a homestead exemption program. In each case, however, these states (and D.C.) have also adopted residential relief programs for targeted populations, such as being a senior citizen or a veteran, or having limited income.

  7. Port Town to Urban Neighborhood: The Georgetown Waterfront of Washington, D.C. 1880-1920 [Download]

    Title: Port Town to Urban Neighborhood: The Georgetown Waterfront of Washington, D.C. 1880-1920
    Author: Smith, Kathryn Schneider
    Description: Originally an eighteenth-century Potomac River port town, Georgetown was included in the ten-mile square set aside for the federal capital in 1791. As the nineteenth century unfolded, Georgetown lost its political, social, and economic independence and became one of many neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. Today it is a prestigious and lively section of a thriving international metropolitan area. The Center for Washington Area Studies of The George Washington University has published historical studies of other sections of Washington, D.C., such as Adams Morgan, Brookland, and Foggy Bottom. But the Georgetown waterfront has begged for attention.

  8. Links in the Chain: Greenbelt, Maryland and the New Town Movement in America, GW Washinton Studies No. 13 [Download]

    Title: Links in the Chain: Greenbelt, Maryland and the New Town Movement in America, GW Washinton Studies No. 13
    Author: Klaus, Susan L.
    Description: The works compiled in this bibliography by Susan L. Klaus, the Center's Banneker Fellow in the 1985-1986 academic year, provide the information which can help the reader reconstruct the greenbelt tradition. Scholars and social critics have contributed a rich literature on the subject, and the Greenbelt fiftieth anniversary conference planned for May 1 and 2, 1987, should deepen our understanding and appreciation of the new towns movement both past and present. For the moment, however, in an age of voluntarism, it may just well be the experiences of Greenbelt residents which provides the most eloquent testimony that even utopian thinking can have its practical consequences in providing a better world to live in. The people of Greenbelt have extended and adapted to new times the spirit of another era, and on the eve of their anniversary celebration, we salute them for helping make the new town ideal a viable reality.
