about

Divided into three sections, this edition of Urban Land Use Planning deftly balances an authoritative, up-to-date discussion of current practices with a vision of what land use planning should become. It explores the societal context of land use planning and proposes a model for understanding and reconciling the divergent priorities among competing stakeholders; it explains how to build planning support systems to assess future conditions, evaluate policy choices, create visions, and compare scenarios; and it sets forth a methodology for creating plans that will influence future land use change. Discussions new to the fifth edition include how to incorporate the three Es of sustainable development (economy, environment, and equity) into sustainable communities, methods for including livability objectives and techniques, the integration of transportation and land use, the use of digital media in planning support systems, and collective urban design based on analysis and public participation.

Editorial Reviews

"'Incomparable' is the only way to describe the fifth edition of this classic text. My fourth edition is worn from a decade of constant use, and I thought there was no way to make Urban Land Use Planning any better, but the fifth edition proves me wrong. It is not merely the best book on the subject; it is, as far as I am concerned, the only book."
