9780070255913: A Concise Guide to Community Planning (P/L Custom Scoring Survey)

Once an ad-hoc, informal process, community planning has now become a demanding discipline that gathers together architects, landscape architects, developers and civil engineers. This concise handbook provides an overview of land-development issues, as well as dozens of job-tested design strategies and real-life cases. From environmental impact to traffic congestion, from specialized demographic needs of the elderly and handicapped to proven rules of thumb in residential development, the book is full of do's and don'ts of effective community planning.
