"Planning for Sustainability presents a straightforward introduction to the concept of planning for more sustainable and livable communities. The author explores topics such as how more compact, walkable cities and towns might be created, how local ecosystems can be restored, how social inequalities might be reduced, and how more sustainable forms of economic development can be brought about. Many photographs, graphics, and examples help illustrate key points." "In addressing this important topic in a highly readable manner, Planning for Sustainability will appeal to students, practitioners, and all those interested in the future of our communities."--Jacket.
