Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time by Jeff Speck
Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time

F Lyman, January 4, 2013

This book should be required reading for the planners inhabiting bureaucracies in typical American cities and suburbs, where the same ol', same ol', car-centric developments keep getting proposed, and, unfortunately, rammed through city councils, even though what people really want is something very different. People do want walkable places, connected places, and not just in big cities but in suburbs, too. Unfortunately the places we get are created by people who don't read books like this one--but citizens who know better should put them in their hands.
