Custodians of Place: Governing the Growth and Development of Cities by Paul G. Lewis & Max Neiman

Custodians of Place provides a new theoretical framework that accounts for how different types of cities arrive at decisions about residential growth and economic development. Lewis and Neiman surveyed officials in hundreds of California cities of all sizes and socioeconomic characteristics and discovered that city governments often can insulate themselves from short-term political pressures and craft policy that builds on past growth experiences and future vision.

What types of cities tend to aggressively pursue industrial or retail firms? What types of cities tend to favor housing over business development? What motivates cities to try to slow residential growth? Custodians of Place answers these and many other questions.
