Thirteen years ago, the first edition of Land-Use Planning for Sustainable Development examined the question: is the environmental doomsday scenario inevitable? It then presented the underlying concepts of sustainable land-use planning and an array of alternatives for modifying conventional planning for and regulation of the development of land. This second edition captures current success stories, showcasing creative, resilient strategies for fundamentally changing the way we alter our landscape.

See What’s New in the Second Edition:

  • Explains the relationship between innovative land-use planning and nature’s impartial, inviolate biophysical principles that govern the outcome of all planning
  • Focuses on how decision making that flows from and aligns with nature’s biophysical principles benefits all generations by consciously protecting and maintaining social-environmental sustainability
  • Proposes an alternative framework for municipal comprehensive plans framing the community as a living system

Written by two experienced professionals in sustainable development planning, the second edition revisits the successes as well as barriers to progress associated with establishing new community development models, such as EcoMunicipalities. The authors emphasize the necessity and potency of citizen involvement and initiatives. They provide proposals for alternative approaches that rest on lessons from history as well as the research, wisdom, and vision of many individuals and communities whose work they have studied. The book supplies a sturdy platform on which to continually build and innovate progress in sustainable land use planning.

Review:

"A comprehensive and visionary approach to land-use planning that grounds the unfolding of human communities and economies within an underlying matrix of living systems. This book should help reinvigorate the planning profession at a time of unprecedented change, complexity, and need for resilience."
―Stuart Cowan, Bainbridge Graduate Institute

"Silberstein and Maser help us imagine a world in which life is valued more than money and the purpose of business is to serve people, community, and nature."
―David Korten, Board chair for YES! Magazine and author, Agenda for a New Economy

"...excellent piece of work... brilliantly written and thoroughly referenced." 
―Dr. H. James Quigley, Stony Brook University, New York, USA
