The identity crisis of unincorporated Campbell County, Kentucky and its effect on open space preservation, development patterns, and the planning process

by Listerman, Emalee M.

Abstract (Summary)
This document attempts to identify valuable forms of open space which could be located in the transitional zones between urban and rural development in unincorporated Campbell County, Kentucky. The literature review first tries to define “valuable open space”. The general definition yielded by the literature review is then used to guide a case study of the Summerlake subdivision. The study analyzes stakeholder interviews to acquire an understanding of planner, developer and resident perspectives concerning open space preservation and valuable forms of open space. A critical analysis of the literature review and interview process reveals that there are many beneficial forms of open space. While it may not be possible to fashion a single definition of open space for Campbell County, there is a significant need to identify the character of the area. Identifying the character of an area may help examine and implement more effective methods for preserving open space. Listerman 2006 ii
