    This lead paper examines the status of high-speed rail in the United States within the context of emerging megaregions. It reflects on the current state of high-speed rail planning globally and examines its link to economic planning and enhanced mobility systems. The assessment of high-speed rail planning internationally has significant implication for the United States. Megaregions offer an appropriate spatial scale for US rail planning. The paper suggests high-speed rail is an attractive mode to consider in providing greater connectivity between and within megaregions as the United States considers reinvestment in its infrastructure and regional economies. In addition, three separate comments then consider the points set forth in the lead paper.

Completed in February 2003, the project was designed to inform the ongoing regional discussion on land use issues and a growing population. It was undertaken in response to the low-density development that characterized the region's growth patterns in the 1990s. The project constructed and tested three distinct alternatives to future land use planning, including focusing on corridors, centers, or environmental sensitivity.

This report lays a solid foundation for the development of an evidence-based business case that supports housing interventions to improve public health in the Atlanta region. It recognizes that the buildings in which we live, the neighborhoods in which they are situated, and the regions to which they are linked determine the quality of our indoor air, the access we have to healthy foods and recreation facilities, the costs of gainful employment, and much more.

This book is an edited volume of the work of a select group of scholars and theoreticians that contributes to the development of the theoretical underpinnings of spatial planning in an American context. The volume addresses the most critical issues confronting us over the next 50 years of American growth, development, and global competition. The authors examine particular ways in which spatial planning may be useful in addressing equity, environmental, and economic concerns. The rising significance of the region and city-regions in the global economy, and the challenges currently confronting American cities and regions, clearly signal the timeliness of this book.

This book is an edited volume of the work of a select group of scholars and theoreticians that contributes to the development of the theoretical underpinnings of spatial planning in an American context. The volume addresses the most critical issues confronting us over the next 50 years of American growth, development, and global competition. The authors examine particular ways in which spatial planning may be useful in addressing equity, environmental, and economic concerns. The rising significance of the region and city-regions in the global economy, and the challenges currently confronting American cities and regions, clearly signal the timeliness of this book.

Ross, Catherine L. (2011). Transport and Megaregions: High-Speed Rail in the United StatesTown Planning Review. Vol. 82 (3), pp. 341-356.

This lead paper examines the status of high-speed rail in the United States within the context of emerging megaregions. It reflects on the current state of high-speed rail planning globally and examines its link to economic planning and enhanced mobility systems. The assessment of high-speed rail planning internationally has significant implication for the United States. Megaregions offer an appropriate spatial scale for US rail planning. The paper suggests high-speed rail is an attractive mode to consider in providing greater connectivity between and within megaregions as the United States considers reinvestment in its infrastructure and regional economies. In addition, three separate comments then consider the points set forth in the lead paper.

Transportation Research Record, Journal of the Transportation Research Board, Special Issue: Social, Environmental, and Economic Sustainability, Vol (2163), pp. 73-80.

This paper identifies seven attributes of robust performance measurement systems by analyzing five performance measurement frameworks and their use of transportation system performance indicators. The attributes are then used to examine three case studies from Europe and the United States to demonstrate the value of performance measurement frameworks for developing and improving sustainable transportation strategies and indicators. The case studies point to important considerations in formulating a robust sustainable transportation strategy at different levels of governance.

Ross, C.L. & Boston, T. (1997). The Inner City: Urban Poverty and Economic Development in the Next Century. New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers.

The Inner City surveys the issues of urban poverty and economic development in the 21st century. The Inner City includes not only the viewpoints of academicians, but also those of practitioners. All take up the argument by Michael Porter that a sustainable economic base can be created in the inner city only if it has been created elsewhere first, through private, for-profit, initiatives and investment based on economic self-interest and genuine competitive advantage, not through artificial inducements, charity, or government. Five community service organizations (whose primary focus is the inner city) present perspectives on their organizations' strategies for inner city revitalization. Each brings a unique approach to problems of the inner city. Following the impassioned arguments are two responses from the co-editors, and one from Michael Porter himself.

Ross, C.L. (2009). Regional Transportation and Development in Atlanta. In G. Hack, E. Birch, P. Sedway, & S. Mitchell (Eds.), Local Planning: Contemporary Principles and Practice. Washington, D.C.: The International City/County Management Association.

This book is an edited volume of the work of a select group of scholars and theoreticians that contributes to the development of the theoretical underpinnings of spatial planning in an American context. The volume addresses the most critical issues confronting us over the next 50 years of American growth, development, and global competition. The authors examine particular ways in which spatial planning may be useful in addressing equity, environmental, and economic concerns. The rising significance of the region and city-regions in the global economy, and the challenges currently confronting American cities and regions, clearly signal the timeliness of this book.
