Greenways are recognized as an essential tool to build sustainable communities. An example in the United States are the rail trails where decommissioned rail corridors are being improved to provide the benefits of non-motorized transportation systems for recreation and exercise, and the daily commute to school, work and shopping. Yet despite these benefits some still argue the presence of the rail trail as a NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard). To address this argument, we calculate the economic benefit to homeowners living in proximity to rail trails over a ten year period to observe the dramatic changes in value over time. It was hypothesized that there would be a change in housing values based on proximity to greenways. This article will begin with an overview and a literature review on research related to greenways and home values, describe the context of this particular case study in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, United States, provide an overview of the methods employed for the calculations and analysis, and conclude with some reflections and the potential limitations that should be considered for undertaking future research on this topic. (original abstract)
Greenways, czyli zielone szlaki, są uważane za istotny element zrównoważonego rozwoju społeczności. Ich przykład stanowią szlaki kolejowe w Stanach Zjednoczonych, gdzie podnosi się jakość wycofanych z eksploatacji korytarzy kolejowych, by jako niezmotoryzowane systemy transportowe mogły przynosić mieszkańcom korzyści w sferze rekreacji, sportu, jak również codziennych dojazdów do szkoły, pracy lub na zakupy. Jednakże pomimo tych korzyści niektórzy nadal krytykują bliskość nieużywanego szlaku kolejowego, przyjmując postawę NIMBY (z ang. not in my back yard - 'nie na moim podwórku'). Aby odnieść się do tej opinii, obliczono ekonomiczne korzyści, jakie odniosły osoby zamieszkujące w pobliżu dawnych szlaków kolejowych przez okres 10 lat, obserwując drastyczną zmianę wartości domów na przestrzeni czasu. Założono, że ceny nieruchomości ulegają zmianie zależnie od bliskości terenów zielonych. Niniejszy artykuł rozpoczyna się od ogólnego spojrzenia na zagadnienie oraz przeglądu literatury naukowej dotyczącej greenways i wartości domów, następnie przedstawiono studium przypadku Pioneer Valley w zachodnim Massachusetts (USA). Zaprezentowano również przegląd metod zastosowanych do obliczeń i analiz. Opracowanie zakończono kilkoma refleksjami i uwagami na temat potencjalnych ograniczeń, które należy rozważyć przed rozpoczęciem dalszych badań. (abstract oryginalny)
