Article Effects of Medical Center on Neighboring Residence Environment
Author Yung-Lung Lee, Chung-Cheng Huang, Cheng-An Tai, Shan-Chiang Lee

Medical facility location considers different spatial characteristics including. 1. Accessibility of medical service is a positive effect of YIMBY (Yes In My Back Yard); 2. Semi-Obnoxious ex. ambulance noise (especially in late night), traffic congestion in service hours, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) like case quarantined or infected which is negative effect of NIMBY (No In My Back Yard). This study selected NCKU (National Cheng Kung University) affiliated hospital (medical center) as target and 500 meters range residents as samples. Then structure questionnaires were conducted for several effecting factors in terms of housing environment. Therefore factor analysis was used to extract key factors for explaining hospital like semi-obnoxious facility location consideration. The result shows: 1. Residents considered more about health risks in terms of NIMBY effects for medical center. 2. The results show resident intend to change the effects of medical center by movement. 3. The Factor analysis extracting factors can be classified as NIMYBY effects (neighborhood amenity, health risk, neighborhood safety) and YIMBY effect (medical service). 4. Green belt planning is suggested to offer a buffer area for mitigating the NIMBY effects of medical center.

Article A Study on Recreational Cycle Route evaluation-Hsinchu County Case
Author Hung-Nien Hsieh, Hsin-Wen Chang, Pei-Jyuan Tang

Recreational cycling and bicycle tourism have increasingly gained their importance in the hierarchical order of development in Taiwan. Bicycle is not only a green transportation mood but also an attraction in scenic area. Both center and local governments are making efforts to promote cycling in Taiwan. Bicycle facilities have become one of the major recreational attractions for many cities and counties. The relationship between tourism, recreation and green transportation development is an inseparable one that affects not only the local economy, but also nation-wide competitiveness in many counties. Hsinchu county government has planned and designed 27 cycling routes in year 2007. This research connected 27 cycling routes into 3 bikeway systems, namely coastal bikeway system, Chupei bikeway system, and lakeshore bikeway system. Each system will cost 13.5 million, 16.79million, and 15.8million New Taiwan dollars to complete these three projects. Therefore, it has become a professional decision for local government to decide the construction priority. It is necessary for the local government to evaluate and select the adaptive planning priority due to the limited budget and resource allocation. This research established factors by literature review, then by applying Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM) to select proper factors. Followed by applying The Analytic Network Process (ANP) to decide the weighted value for 3 bikeway systems, and finally Zero One Goal Programming (ZOGP) is applied to make a suggestion to local government in public investment decision making on construction bikeway systems.

Article A Study of Redevelopment Strategy in Pingtung Industrial Park
Author Tsung-Ying Lu, Yung-Cheng Hsu

 Due to the economic globalization and the change of the industrial structure, a lot of manufacturers in Taiwan consider the management strategy to go out of business or move factories abroad. Under the decreasing of manufacturers and the condition of moving abroad, we find the industrial park of idle space or low degree use and cause the unbalance of supply and demand of industrial land. How to promote the industrial park redevelopment or old industrial district redevelopment in order to increase land and use efficiency, exalt environmental quality, and then drive to the ideal goal of the industrial park sustainable development. That will be one of the problem that industrial parks administration must face nowadays. This research focuses Pingtung industrial park. With the literature of industrial park redevelopment and the research of strategy, we examine the immediate situation and problem of Pingtung industrial park by questionnaires. We try to realize the viewpoint of manufacturers in Pingtung industrial park, in order to make the strategy of Pingtung industrial park redevelopment as the reference foundation. Besides, we keep combining the development strategy of domestic and international industrial parks and the statistic analysis contents of Manufacturers' questionnaires as the strategy reference of Pingtung industrial park. From the aspects of industry, environment program and organization, we make the redevelopment strategy of Pingtung industrial park. And we are looking forward to promoting the actual environment of industrial parks through the redevelopment strategy we have mentioned. We try to make the economic recovery and make some suggestion as the reference of government policy in the future.

Article The Institutional Crisis of Taipei's Entrepreneurial Urban Governance in the Process of Political Co
Author I-Chih Lan, Chen-Jai Lee

While the phenomena of intercity competition has been intensified because of the emergence of global city (-region) system, entrepreneurial urban governance has been taken as an important institutional engineering in accordance with the competition-oriented new urban politics. Since the critical review of urban entrepreneurialism by David Harvey, the discourse of entrepreneurial urban governance, with the approach of urban political economy during the latest two decades, has been gradually transformed from the power structure of local political economy based on urban growth machine and urban regime to the interscalar power contestation within the framework of spatial rescaling as well as the mechanism of spatial selectivity by state apparatus in response to emerging glocalization. While the contemporary political context of urban governance is full of Western Post-Fordist urban experiences, the paper tries to take the pathway of Taipei's global city formation as an example to explore the ad hoc interscalar contestation due to cross-strait political tension, asymmetric intergovernmental relationships, and vicious intercity competition. In addition, the paper also attempts to explore the institutional constrains of mechanism of spatial selectivity driven by central state to Taipei's entrepreneurial governance capacity and take a experience conversation of different developmental pathway between Taipei and the prototypical Post-Fordist Western cities.
