Typology of suburban communities in Poland.

  • Grzegorz Zębik - Jagiellonian University, Poland

  • Keywords
    Poland, suburbanization, suburban communities, cities, types, clusters

    The paper presents an attempt to classify new and existing suburban communities in Poland based on spatial patterns and comparisons with suburbs in the United States. Fifteen types of Polish suburban communities are identified in the paper. As large-scale suburban development is a relatively new phenomenon in Poland, most Polish suburban communities will continue to evolve over time and make the transition from one community type to another. An understanding of each type of suburban community may help local governments assist the communities they serve in the process of creating infrastructure and jobs for a growing population.
