Concise Guide to Community Planning by Kenneth B. Hall

Book Description

Once an ad hoc, informal process, community planning has now become a demanding discipline that gathers together architects, landscape architects, developers, and civil engineers. In this concise, easy-to-use handbook, readers will get a clear overview of land development issues - plus dozens of job-tested design strategies and illuminating real case examples. From environmental impact to traffic congestion, from specialized demographic needs of the elderly and handicapped to proven "rules of thumb" in residential development, the book is packed with the do's and dont's of effective community planning.
