No description available, Blending detailed historical perspective with contemporary survey research Charles Hoch and Robert Slayton argue that the answers to one of the most pressing problems of our time come from the poor themselves Their examination of the Skid Row single room occupancy hotel SRO reveals how communities formed by low income single person households have for decades offered the security personal autonomy and privacy for the old homeless that the new homeless lack And they show how public urban renewal efforts which destroyed the bulk of these hotels with the intent to rid the inner city of the Skid Row homeless actually laid the foundation for today s urban homeless crisis p Focusing on Chicago from to the present but including case studies in other cities Hoch and Slayton analyze how these SRO hotels operated in the past and claim that the term flop house really described a wide range of shelter types available to the poor according to their economic conditions p p Based on their research the authors conclude that policies for solving the homeless problem should focus mainly not on the homeless people but on the institutional actors who benefit directly and indirectly from their predicament This means changing public policies that encourage the destruction of affordable housing especially SRO hotels and implementing preservation rehabilitation and new construction policies instead p, i What Planners Do i is an innovative study of strategies used by urban planners in city governments of the United States to grapple with the political side of their profession Hoch focuses on the attitudes of planners toward the compromises they make to accommodate political conflict budgetary constraints and bureaucratic red tape br br Covered are the ways planners utilize research formulate plans regulate development organize political coalitions cope with racial discrimination and negotiate with members of business groups community organizations and government agencies Throughout Hoch identifies the pitfalls of common approaches taken by planners and gives examples of helpful alternatives br br Hoch s analysis features responses from interviews he conducted with professional planners who share insights and observations about their experiences and describe their reactions to problems encountered on the job from enforcing building codes to selling a town council on a renovation project Also included is a comprehensive overview of planning theory and the results of past survey research and case studies, No description available
