Title: Planning Urban Development: Exploring Network Signals, Sites, and Economic Opportunity Dynamics

Abstract: Network and simulation sciences have created new tools and theories suitable for complex urban system studies. However, models for urban economic development applications require compatible interdisciplinary network and urban planning theories. A case study of the City of Roanoke, Virginia, grounds network and development theories of scaling, engagement, and collective information processing, or development network functions, as well as theorizing multiple community network forms underlying co-evolving urban development. By advancing urban development network theory, frameworks for urban simulation tools suitable for planning scenario studies and experiments take more coherent shape. This, in turn, better positions city decision-making and planning practitioners to adapt, transform, or renew local network-oriented development systems.
