Linked Development in U.S. Cities: Description of Policy Efforts with a Brief Discussion of Critical Issues
This report is a compilation with a brief discussion of linked development programs from eleven U.S. cities and one county. The information was first identified by the Center for Urban Economic Development (CUED) at the University of Illinois at Chicago as part of a technical assistance project with the Chicago 1992 Committee. The 1992 Committee had requested a catalogue of policy instruments of balanced investment for discussion and possible application in Chicago.
