It provides a single-source for the key reference articles on urban design and physical planning of cities, including social, environmental and economic data.

This inaugural volume on the topic of urban design in the Time-Saver Standard series is written for easy reference by urban planners and designers, architects, landscape professionals, environmental engineers, civil and transportation engineers, as well as municipal government and planning officials.
