GEO 215 Week 2 Individual Assignment Population and Urbanization Analysis
You work for the urban city planning department for UrCity. UrCity has been experiencing phenomenal growth; population has expanded from 50,000 to 1 million people over the past 10 years. UrCity has offered homebuilders incentives to build communities on the outlying edges of the city center, producing multiple suburbs to reach a population of 2 million over the next 10 years. The goal of the city is to add 25,000 new homes per year to accommodate the projected growth in population. The problem is there are neither mass transit systems nor sufficient roadways to transport people to and from the suburbs into the city. The urban planning department has been asked to review the situation. You have been asked to analyze the situation and present your findings.
Prepare an 8-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed notes that addresses the following:
Describe your population and the trend of migration.
Analyze the factors that influence the distribution of your population.
Identify the needs of this urban society.
Provide your thoughts on plans that could slow the sprawl and correct the problems with commuting.
