Editorial Reviews

Review

"Growing Greener Cities offers invaluable evidence that we can grow our cities' economies while continuing to repair their ecological foundation. The authors illustrate how the two go hand in hand and offer concrete methods for fixing some of the most challenging issues cities face today."—Andy Altman, Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, Philadelphia



"Now more than ever, we need vibrant, attractive cities to counter the unsustainable impacts of suburban sprawl. This book shows how to use green infrastructure—from heat- and water-absorbing green roofs to restorative neighborhood parks—to draw and hold residents and businesses while improving environmental quality. It's an essential read for anyone interested in making our cities strong and sustainable."—Frances Beinecke, President, Natural Resources Defense Council



"These authors provide a rich menu of ideas and examples for transforming our cities into models of energy efficiency, sustainability, quality living and economic revitalization."—Bruce Babbitt, former Secretary of the Interior and author of Cities in the Wilderness: A New Vision of Land Use
