Summary

Nine case studies reflecting major economic development activities¿redevelopment, planning, balancing values and politics, and comparing costs and benefits. Suitable for use in a classroom and as stimulating discussion material in a local government setting, these cases set forth typical dilemmas facing local government managers¿short term vs. long term advantage, the development-social equity balance, and costs vs. benefits. All depend on strong leadership and clear reasoning for successful resolution. Most cases are described by the managers who were involved in the actual situations, thereby presenting the issues as they were perceived by decision makers involved. Both fact and theory are presented, and discussion questions suggested.
