Concentric Zone Theory
Park and Burgess used Concentric Zone Theory to break up the city of Chicago into five zones. They used the theory to explain why crime occurs in each zone. Although this was created and applied to the city of Chicago, in this assignment, you will apply this theory to your city (you can use your city or a neighboring city).

How does Concentric Zone Theory apply to your selected city?
