Abstract or Summary
  • The study of the interactions between man and his environment is the eminent domain of the geographer. An excellent example of this kind of study is the urbanization of a formerly rural town on the urban-rural fringe. The area in this instance is Tualatin, Oregon, with the focus on the role of the land developer. This paper concentrates on the attitudes of the developer and how he defines his role in converting agricultural land to urban use. The growing dominance of subdivisions in providing new homes and the promise of Planned Unit Development are explored. The impact of tougher building regulations and zoning ordinances are examined and a cursory look is taken at regional planning as one solution to controlling urban growth.
