About this book

Written by a former president of the American Planning Association, "Community Planning" is thorough, specific, and timely. It addresses such important contemporary issues as sustainability, walkable communities, the role of urban design in public safety, changes in housing needs for a changing population, and multi-modal transportation planning. Unlike other books, it addresses all of these topics in the context of the local comprehensive plan. Boxes at the end of each chapter explain how professional planners and individual citizens, respectively, typically engage the issues addressed in the chapter.

For all readers, "Community Planning" provides a pragmatic view of the comprehensive plan, clearly explained by a respected authority.
