For the past fifty years, urban planning has revolved around the presumed necessity of perpetual growth and development. Contending that the supposed benefits of endless growth cannot—and should not—be taken for granted, The Future of Planning comprises a timely exploration of alternative urban development models. Filled with practical suggestions that establish a new planning agenda, it proposes new ways to protect and enhance existing low-value land uses as well as the means of managing community assets within the built environment. This book will be essential reading for planning students, scholars, and practitioners.
