SANTIAGO, Carla Marchant; RAGGI, Juan Pablo Frick  e  ERICES, Luis Vergara. Urban growth trends in midsize Chilean cities: the case of Temuco. urbe, Rev. Bras. Gest. Urbana [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.3, pp.375-389.  Epub 22-Ago-2016. ISSN 2175-3369.

Academic production about the main Chilean cities exceeds the existing documentation on intermediate cities, though they have shown interesting trends patterns in recent years which have changed the urban system in Chile. This paper aimed to analyze the urban growth processes in Chilean intermediate cities using Temuco as a case study. It begins with an historical look at the city and then mentions that in the last decades this kind of cities have undergone new forms of segregation associated to real estate activities such as private communities, rural residential properties and new localization of services which have resulted in a fragmentation of urban space, a phenomenon reinforced by the consolidation of some satellite cities. At the same time, many urban problems associated to poverty, like a standstill of the regional economy and environmental pollution have appeared, jeopardizing the sustainability of these spaces, questioning current development parameters. The article ends considering the future challenges in Temuco’s urban development.
