Greenways: Planning, Design, & Development

by

Greenways: Planning, Design, & Development Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greenways - linear open spaces that preserve and restore nature in cities, suburbs, and rural areas - are proving to be the most innovative land protection concept of the decade. Their diverse manifestations and wide variety of ecological, social, and economic values have made them the focus of planning for the future open space needs of Americans.

This book provides professionals and citizen activists with the tools they need for developing a greenway plan. Topics covered include:

  • the physical development of a greenway
  • organizing community resources
  • forging partnerships among public agencies, private groups, citizens, and businesses
  • principles of ecological design, including wetland restoration, water quality, and wildlife issues
The book offers general guidance for the overall process along with specific detail for each step along the way. It is an invaluable source of information for professional and volunteer planners, with the recommendations, guidelines, warnings, and support needed for successful greenway development.
