What do geographers mean by spatial segregation, population decline, racial change, and demographic stress?

What are some solutions that urban planners, policymakers, or community stakeholders might use to address these problems?

I will not answer your first few questions. Those can be easily defined by doing a little research.

The second part about solutions is a little more complex. It is complex because those issues you are looking for definitions for may not even be considered a "problem" by the community.

If it is identified as a problem it is usually done so by the community stakeholders, who inform the policymakers (elected officials). If the policymakers agree there is a problem, they task the planners to address the issue.

The first thing planners do is to ask the stakeholders what they want to see done (nice little circle, huh?). Planners then craft goals, objectives, and implementation measures in the form of a plan or ordinance to accomplish what is needed within the framework of the local and national laws. The planners then submit their ideas to the policymakers for adoption and, if the budget allows, funding.
