7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Joshua P. OConner VINE VOICE on September 12, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Having embarked on a sustainability plan without the aid or foresight of any type of guidebook or comprehensive strategy, I am extremely supportive of the effort that author Stephen Coyle has undertaken in compiling Sustainable and Resilient Communities. This book should be the "Read Me!" document for anyone looking to engage in sustainability planning efforts from a government or community perspective. It's not the first book that I've read on how to engage in sustainability efforts (honestly such titles are beginning to become "a dime a dozen"), but it is the first book that focuses on how to create an action plan to make a community more sustainable (rather than simply focusing on successful efforts in other areas). Coyle manages to provide realistic strategies that can easily be worked into the political context of almost any community without crossing into the fringe of developing technologies or antiquated reductionist themes.

Sustainable and Resilient Communities is broken down into 13 chapters which address the various facets of sustainability. The chapters are:
1. The Built Environments and Its Supporting Systems
2. The Process of Transformation
3. The Physical Built Environment
4. The Regulatory Environment
5. Transportation
6. Energy
7. Water
8. Natural Environment
9. Food Production/Agriculture
10. Solid Waste
11. Economics
12. Engagement and Education
13. Public Health

The first two chapters provide a solid assessment of the sustainability planning process and offer a prescriptive framework for how it can be implemented within a community.
