Sustaining Places: Best Practices for Comprehensive Plans (PAS 578)

Learn the steps and standards for putting sustainability in its place — at the heart of the long-range plan — in the latest PAS Report to come out of APA's Sustaining Places Initiative. Share experiences from big cities and small towns, plus real-world ideas for meeting the greatest planning challenge of our time. This report is not a recipe. It's a resource with principles, processes, and pointers communities can use to forge their own solutions.


Planning Atlanta cover

Planning Atlanta

More than any other major U.S. city, Atlanta regularly reinvents itself. From the Civil War to the 1996 Olympic boom to the current housing crisis, the city's history is a cycle of rise and fall, ruin and resurgence. In Planning Atlanta, two dozen planning practitioners and thought leaders bring the story to life. They probe the city's economic and environmental growing pains. And they look toward new plans that will shape Atlanta's next incarnation.
