Urban Land Use theory Intro - City= a “built environment” where range of activities take place - Typically, these activities – land uses- divided into 6 categories: o Residential 30% o Industrial 9% o Commercial 4% Approx. Proportions in N.A cities o Roads 20% (same as above) o Public land 15% (same as above) o Vacant land rest Question: how do these land uses sort themselves out? Urban Land uses and the competition for space - Recall von Thunen’s model: o R=Y(P-C) – YTD Y- yield, P- price, C-cost, T- freight rate, D-Distance, R- location rent - Result-> concentric rings of crop production with highest intensity crops closest to market - How can’t these ideas be applied in the context of urban land uses? o Process of competitive bidding -> whoever is willing to pay the highest price for a particular site will(theoretically) put that site to its best use o Trade off: transportation vs. distance – slope of 1, land costs vs. distance – slope -1 o

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
