  3. 3. Open Space Planning Re-thinking Newark - Working LandscapeNewark is one of the nation’s oldest industrial cities and the largest city in New Jersey. Like many older industrial cities,Newark has legacy of both grand historic open spaces and environmental degradation. Newark has lowest acreage of openspace per capita of any major city in the country, only 2.9 acres of parks per 1,000 residents, ranking it at the bottom of 55major cities in the United States. At present Newark has only 5.3% of open space.

Open Space PlanningRe-thinking Newark - Working Landscape Proposed Activities: - A pedestrian/bike path - Recreation/educational Programs provide a glimpse of working industrial infrastructure - Conserve natural habitat Existing Condition Contaminated Sites in City of Newark Proposed Condition
  6. 6. Open Space PlanningRe-thinking Newark - Working Landscape Conclusion: Implementation The working landscape proposal provides Newark an opportunity to transform the unused and superfund sites into a much needed recreational amenity. By connecting it to a regional greenway network in the future it would not only bene t Newark residents but also people outside Newark.ExistingProposed

  12. 12. GIS/CAD MappingEmergency Preparedness Plan for Limerick Nuclear Powerplant usingGIS ApplicationLimerick Generating Station is located in southeastern Pennsylvania, about 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia in Mont-gomery County. The power plant consists of two reactor units - the rst reactor unit was activated in 1986 and the secondwas activated in 1990. Utility companies, in this case – Exelon, are granted a 40-year operating license to use the nuclearfacility. In some cases, these utility companies are granted a 20-year license extension – the current license expirations are10/26/2024 (unit 1) and 06/22/2029 (unit 2).
