As traditional rural industries give way to residential and commercial development, the land at the edges of developed areas - the rural-urban fringe - is becoming the middle landscape between city and countryside that the suburbs once were. When City and Country Collide examines the fringe phenomenon and presents a workable approach to fostering more compact development. It provides viable alternatives to traditional land use and development practices and offers a solid framework and rational perspective for wider adoption of growth management techniques. It is a valuable guide for planners and students of planning, policymakers, elected officials, and citizens working to minimize sprawl.
