Avoiding Decline : Fostering Resilience and Sustainability in Midsize Citie / Craig R. Allen, Hannah E. Birge, Shannon Bartelt-Hunt
Sustainability 2016, 8(9), 844, published 26 August 2016
"Eighty-five percent of United States citizens live in urban areas. However, research surrounding the resilience and sustainability of complex urban systems focuses largely on coastal megacities (>1 million people). Midsize cities differ from their larger counterparts due to tight urban-rural feedbacks with their immediate natural environments that result from heavy reliance and close management of local ecosystem services. They also may be less path-dependent than larger cities due to shorter average connection length among system components, contributing to higher responsiveness among social, infrastructural, and ecological feedbacks. These distinct midsize city features call for a framework that organizes information and concepts concerning the sustainability of midsize cities specifically. We argue that an integrative approach is necessary to capture properties emergent from the complex interactions of the social, infrastructural, and ecological subsystems that comprise a city system. We suggest approaches to estimate the relative resilience of midsize cities, and include an example assessment to illustrate one such estimation approach." [site visité le 09/09/2016]

Neighborhood sustainability : The genesis of three EcoDistricts within Portland, Oregon
Undergraduate Honor Theses, Portland State University, 2014
"This research aims to gain a better understanding for how the processes, goals, and actions are formulated and implemented throughout three EcoDistricts within Portland—Foster Green, Living Cully, and South of Market (SoMa). More specifically, this study will analyze how these districts are formed around three different drivers in the push for sustainability . These drivers include Portland State University, located within the boundaries of SoMa, Foster Green’s suburban environment, and poverty within Cully. The research will use case studies to provide insight into those three drivers, and then what this means for on the ground results. As EcoDistricts currently reside as the most well known example for neighborhood sustainability in Portland, and arguably across the United States, this research will analyze the EcoDistricts process and look to infer how this translates to general neighborhood scale efforts. Challenges and possible solutions will then be brought forth to help set up futu re research into the field. This paper will draw out the major themes present in neighborhood scale literature that suggest successful sustainable efforts. I will then use this research to provide context for Portland’s biggest neighborhood scale effort, EcoDistricts. Through the analysis of SoMa, Foster Green, and Cully, I will then be able to draw on the successes and failures of the districts, tie them back to the literature, and finish by analyzing Neighborhood sustainability : The genesis of three EcoDistricts within Portland, Oregon what this means for the future of neighborhood scale sustainability efforts.
