Concentric Zone Theory

A theory of urban land-use patterns, developed by William Burgess, that states that a city will assume the form of five concentric urban zones: the central business district, the zone in transition, the zone of working persons' homes, the zone of better residences, and the commuters' zone. Growth is accomplished by the expansion of each zone into the next zone. Source:AMA
