Book Authors Discussion: Sprawlogy

Saturday, April 26, 2014, 10:30amRapid shifts in demographics, personal and cultural values, perceptions of what constitutes a healthy environment, and America's economy have come together to form a "perfect storm" that is undermining the viability of sprawl as a growth model. For sixty years mature suburbs have been formed around this model and many newer suburbs expect continued growth following a low density, decentralized sprawl model. The auto-oriented environments which represent sprawl's trademark are increasingly less competitive than walkable environments as places to live, work, play...and invest. This rapid reversal is responsible in part for the fact that for the first time in American history more poor people live in suburbs than cities. Mature and newer suburbs alike need to understand how to retrofit failing commercial centers, outmoded office parks, brownfields, and other declining environments into higher density, mixed-use, compact development that supports walkable urbanism and accommodates greater diversity. This upcoming book from Planners Press titled, “Sprawlogy” will provide an overview of the dynamics underlying this trend and their anticipated impact over the next decade, planning and urban design principles to guide transformation of sprawl environments into walkable urbanism, a guide to understanding the role of real estate economics, examples of community-based planning processes in suburbs that have produced plans for compact and walkable redevelopment, an inventory of effective implementation tools, and successful case studies.
