FLORIDA THEMES : URBAN DEVELOPMENT

Urban growth and development has proceeded at an amazing rate in the state of Florida. Cities and towns that started out as small cowtowns have been developed into massive population centers. As Florida has changed from a tourist destination to a retirement state, growth planning has been a major component of infrastructure development. Growth planning may include studies of water demands, transportation needs, housing and urban growth, and related growth planning materials.
The Florida Heritage Collection offers many works about the growth and development of Florida. Some of the documents highlight historical sketches of towns such as Miami and Tampa, growth of the school systems, and government efforts and programs for development, such as the Works Progress Administration. The materials in this section of the collection detail many interesting aspect's of Florida's evolution as a major population center, providing both historical and more current views on the subject.
