dc.description.abstract In recent history we have witnessed the "progression" of technology and subsequent degradation of our communities. While technology claims to connect and bring people together through ideas like the world wide web, this type of connection and technology in turn discourages local community values. The loss social interaction and recreation within our own homes, towns and landscapes deteriorates our communities. Recent changes in technology has removed the once strong connection each of our communities had to their landscape.The Great Lakes communities and landscapes are of the most obvious examples of the effects technology has had on the integrity of our communities. These towns were once centered both socially and economically on their landscape, their identity and culture was defined by it. As technology shifted to the highways the communities began to lose their connection to the landscape and each other.As designers, more specifically Landscape Architects, we have the ability and knowledge to discourage the effects our shifting technology has and provide for or improve the quality of life for a community. This study attempts to identify and utilize a community's needs, both social and economic, and their local history to reconnect and revitalize the physical landscape, as well as, the social culture and identity.
