A 'Rapid Response Team' For Planning First Aid
"While, to the cruise ships below, the village seems carefree, defiantly heedless of all notions of gravity, the cliff clinging Oia (pronounced 'ee-a') is actually grappling with an avalanche of troubles caused by its postcard perfect location and winning beauty. That's where an experienced tourism rapid response team from the University of Cincinnati comes in. The team, led by Michael Romanos, professor of planning at UCs prestigious College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, has visited municipalities in Crete for four years now, providing on-the-spot aid to underprepared and overwhelmed locales unexpectedly caught in tourisms rising tide."
