Produktbeschreibung
This book examines environmental impacts. It
assesses residents attitudes towards impacts on the
environment in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and invites
citizens to take leadership and participate in
problem solving regarding the environment. This is
the first study of its kind on the city. It is among
the few in-depth works that query residents on actual
participation and nonparticipation in community
decision making about tourism and the environment,
especially in terms of intensity of participation,
nature, and frequency of involvement. This work
contributes these new elements. It presents citizens
responses on solutions to correct environmental
impacts in their community. The book adds, as well,
to this area of research, by underscoring how
citizens perceptions have significance for
democracy, public policy, governance, and public
administration. The analysis has implications for
citizens and their participation, planners,
policymakers, public managers, local governments and
agencies. The book is also useful to scholars in
public administration, urban studies, environmental
studies, political science, community studies,
tourism, and anyone concerned about the environment.
