Written in a clear and engaging style, Designing the City is a practical manual for improving the way communities are planned, designed, and built. It presents case studies from across the country that highlight proven models and strategies to help community developers to establish productive partnerships with public works and transportation departments; develop resources through grant programs; incorporate artists and cultural facilities into community development; create new and enduring models for effective action; and educate participants and consumers of the design and development process.
Designing the City draws on Adele Fleet Bacow's extensive experience in community development, design, and the arts. It is an invaluable resource for all those who want to improve their neighborhoods and communities - citizens, elected officials, developers, public agencies, planners, designers, environmentalists, artists, and activists.
