The indispensable book for every planning practitioner, administrator, student, or litigator! With nearly 1,800 definitions of planning, zoning, and related terms, this is the backbone volume for every planner's library. This invaluable resource standardizes in one handy reference all the key terms used in zoning, subdivision, site plan, and environmental ordinances. The definitions are designed to be used directly in ordinances with little or no change. The more complex terms are clarified in commentaries and annotations that provide pertinent legal background and explain how the definitions may be used in ordinances. This is an entirely new and completely updated edition of the classic Illustrated Book of Development Definitions. Completely new entries cover the most recent land-use and environmental legislation. Written and illustrated by two professional planners with more than 70 years of combined experience in the practice of planning and zoning, this is a basic working tool and required reference for everyone involved in land development planning and regulation.

The latest edition of The Illustrated Book of Development Definitions breaks new ground. It addresses traditional and new planning problems: natural and industrial disasters such as hurricanes and oil spills; new housing types and living accommodations; changes in urban design and practice like new urbanism; sustainability; pedestrian and bicycle friendly environments; and more. Joining Harvey S. Moskowitz and Carl G. Lindbloom, authors of the first three editions, are two prominent, nationally known planners: David Listokin and Richard Preiss. Attorney Dwight H. Merriam adds legal annotations to almost all 2,276 definitions. These citations from court decisions bridge the gap between land use theory and real world application, bringing a new dimension to this edition. More than 20,000 copies of previous editions were sold over four decades to professionals and government representatives, such as members of planning and zoning boards and municipal governing bodies. This first revision in ten years updates what is widely acknowledged as an essential, standard reference for planners.

Illustrated definitions are rarely found in zoning and development ordinances. Ordinances prefer the "thousand words" rather than the "single picture." Illustrations greatly simplify how standards should be applied, particularly where the lot or parcel is irregularly shaped or where there are a number of variables present, each of which might have an impact on how the ordinance might apply in a specific situation. This best-selling resource has been the mainstay of the planner's bookshelf since its first publication and it differs from other books and publications containing development definitions in three major respects: It is illustrated; most of the definitions are designed to be used directly in ordinances with little or no change; and the more complex definitions are accompanied by commentaries and annotations that explain how the definition may be used in an ordinance, along with background information pertinent to the definition. This expanded edition standardizes in one handy reference all the key terms used in zoning, subdivision, site plan, and environmental ordinances. In all, it contains 1,957 definitions and 103 illustrations that can be incorporated in local ordinances with little or no change. Written and illustrated by two professional planners with nearly eighty years of combined experience in the practice of planning and zoning, this is a basic working tool and required reference for anyone involved in land development planning and regulation.

This is a book about the giants of American planning—the urban and regional planners who shaped the American landscape over the last century. In sensitive, compelling essays, the contributors explore the myths and virtues of the planning profession in human terms—the frustrations, hopes, anger, pride, fears, dreams, and foolishness of the leading practitioners of the field. Donald A. Krueckeberg's unique compilation of biographies shows how planners were molded by the conflicting demands of self and culture—and how that fusion was reflected in their actions and impacts on American society. Catherine Bauer, Alfred Bettman, Daniel Burnham, Kevin Lynch, Benton MacKaye, Lewis Mumford, Frederick Law Olmsted, Rexford Tugwell—and a host of other visionaries—come to life on the pages of this work. Why should we read these stories? "In the sharing of these secrets," Krueckeberg writes, "planners form a culture, a community of ideas and contentions that define and redefine our salvation in our practices." The book realizes the hope of all good biography: it shows how particular planners acquired their personalities from the demands of self and culture and how that fusion was reflected in their actions and their impacts on American society. This is essential reading for every planner, from student to hardened veteran.

This synthesis will be of interest to state and local transportation agency personnel responsible for access management, as well as to traffic and highway design engineers, land use planners, zoning administrators, environmental specialists, and policymakers or legislators. It describes the various methods for improving traffic operations by managing the location, design, and operation of driveways, median openings, and street connections from business and residential land uses in urban areas. This report of the Transportation Research Board discusses state and local regulatory practice and policy related to subdivision regulations, lot split requirements, development review, access requirements, zoning, and other administrative and legal considerations. The specific regulatory techniques cited by local governments that are used to support access management are identified and discussed, including setback requirements, driveway spacing and operating characteristics, and land use techniques such as minimizing commercial strip development and promoting mixed-use zoning. The increasingly important role of comprehensive planning and intergovernmental cooperation in access management are highlighted. The role of remedial measures, including special exceptions and waivers, is discussed.
