Abstract

This research deals with the development of open spaces of the Moshavot of Eastern Galilee: Metula, Yesod-Himaala, Rosh-Pina, Mizpa Ellania, Kfar-Tavor, Kinneret, Menachamia and Yavniel.

This research includes five chapters.

The first chapter is an introduction which clarifies the subject and its aim.

The second chapter deals with the functions that open - spaces fulfill is both urban and rural areas.

The third chapter defines the Moshava as a form of settlement in regard of idealistic and physical aspects. The main point of this chapter deals with the Moshavot in the Eastern Galilee and with the characterization of the land use pattern and with the development of the use of the land.

The fourth chapter is the research itself. The different open-spaces had been located, classified and recorded from the foundation of the Moshavot up until 1987. Likewise of kinds and functions of open-spaces have been examined through maps aerial photos arid field study. The results have been analyzed thoroughly and the conclusion seems that in every Moshava the dynamics of the open-spaces took place in accordance with forces that function in each settlement through the general development is similar in the most of the Moshavot. However a unified pattern of the open-spaces didn't really develop.

The last chapter deals with conclusions and recommendations for future plans. The main conclusion is that recently there have been considerable changes in the character of Moshava in general and therefore also in that of open-spaces. The conclusion regarding future plans is that difficult to allocate the suitable quota of open landscapes in the Moshavot therefore it is recommended to go according to the regulations of contour plans.
