"William Honachefsky's Ecologically Based Municipal Land Use Planning will dramatically change the way municipalities plan their land use. Drawing on more than thirty years of experience, he presents a powerful combination of strategies that: restore the municipal master plan as the dominant planning document, incorporate scientific and ecological research studies from the last three decades, apply the Geographic Information System to problem solving and layout of the master plan, and designate the protection of the community's ecological infrastructure as the premier priority."--Jacket. "Honachefsky provides easily understood, nuts-and-bolts solutions that can be implemented immediately. Ecologically Based Municipal Land Use Planning makes a compelling case for sound land use policies and should be in the hands of anyone concerned with reducing urban sprawl."--Jacket.
