          Transportation Project Impact Case Studies (T-PICS) is a web tool that provides access to a nationwide database of 100 case studies that describe the pre- and post-construction economic development effects of 11 kinds of transportation projects. With T-PICS users can conduct “before and after” assessments of a range of projects, compare case studies developed for each project to other similar projects in the database, and view a wide range of information about each of the case studies. The tool can also be used to estimate a range of possible economic impacts that might result from constructing a project. T-PICS is available at www.transportationforcommunities.com/t-pics. www.TRB.org/SHRP2

                  from Culturefighter Added 42 0 0

                  The creative industries are interesting for the regeneration of cities because they have large spin-off effects. Branches of the creative and cultural industries always generate value added for other sectors of the economy, whether it’s tourism, infrastructure, improved image or just an increased economic turnover. For this reason it was obvious that creative industries would be a good investment because it is an investment multiplier. We saw it here in the Ruhr region after two years of actively supporting the creative industries – which existed here already – we’ve seen the growth rate of companies go up by 7% per year. We see examples where the creative industries start reusing empty unused spaces, such as old railways stations, empty townhalls and churches. Those companies are not just doing their business, they are doing something for the city that no other branch of the economy is doing. Some 10 years ago, Coca-cola stopped its production in Essen and around 500 employees lost their jobs. Today, creatives from the field of communication and product design use the building without public financial support, based on self-initiative. At the moment, there are around 670 people working there. These industrial spaces lost their original purpose, but the creative industry now utilises them and adds to the attractiveness of the city. People like to work in design environment, not in ugly, monotonous surroundings. This place, Zeche Ludwig, is now somewhere where people also go out.
