about

Small and mid-sized suburban towns house two-thirds of the world¿s population and current modes of planning for these municipalities are facing challenges of both philosophy and form. Common approaches that have prevailed in past decades no longer sustain new demands and require innovative thinking. Rather than dismissing small and mid-sized towns as unattractive suburban sprawl,Planning Small and Mid-Sized Townsoffers ideas and methods on how small isolated and edge towns can be designed and retooled into sustainable, affordable and adaptable communities.

Coverage includes:

  • the evolution of small towns
  • mobility and connectivity
  • neighborhood and sustainable dwelling design
  • town centers and urban renewal
  • economic sustainability and wealth generation, and more.

With numerous case studies from North America and Europe and over 150 color photographs, maps, and illustrations,Planning Small and Mid-Sized Townsis a valuable, practical resource for professional planners and urban designers, as well as students in these disciplines.
