Gammage relates Phoenix's development patterns to the historical context. He examines how the region can better manage future growth given the issues of water, transportation, work patterns, and infrastructure, as well as the context. A thought-provoking read for anyone interested in the urban Southwest and twentieth-century American cities.

About the Author:

Grady Gammage Jr. is an Arizona native who has practiced law in Phoenix since his graduation from Stanford Law School. He has spent the last 20 years dealing with land use, development, and growth issues; representing real estate development projects such as master-planned communities, high-rise buildings, regional shopping centers, and sprawling tracts of subdivisions; and consulting with cities and towns. In 1981, Mr. Gammage was instrumental in structuring Arizona's innovative Urban Lands Act, which allowed state trust lands to be released for private development. He has chaired the Phoenix Design Review Standards Committee twice, helping create mechanisms to regulate the aesthetics of commercial and residential development. He serves as an elected official as a board member of the Central Arizona Water Conservation District, and was president of that board from 1985-89. Mr. Gammage is also an adjunct professor at the Arizona State University Colleges of Architecture and Environmental Design and Law, where he teaches classes on land use regulation and on historic preservation planning.
