Planning the Pacific Northwest book cover

Planning the Pacific Northwest

A day trip in the Pacific Northwest can go from pristine wilderness to downtown Seattle, Portland, or Vancouver. How are these commercial and cultural hot spots keeping nature and growth in balance — and what's coming next? Trace the path from forests and fish to bikes and brews in Planning the Pacific Northwest, a tale of three cities leading the way to smart growth. This title continues the APA Planners Press series on how planning shapes major American cities.


Rural by Design book cover

Rural by Design

When this planning classic by author Randall Arendt first appeared 20 years ago, it showed how creative, practical land-use planning can preserve open space and keep community character intact. The second edition of Rural by Design shifts the focus toward infilling neighborhoods, strengthening town centers, and moving development closer to schools, shops, and jobs. Readers will find practical advice about planning for the way we live now.
