Legal Empowerment of the Neighbourhood

“This article examines the inefficacy of the present legal form of local government in the US. This inefficacy manifests itself by providing no solid legal mooring for the power of local government while contributing to regional economic inequalities. In an attempt to address this problem, the author suggests realigning local government to the neighbourhood level while constructing a new tier of government to mitigate the negative economic consequences of such realignment.”
