Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is meant to introduce students and laypersons to community planning. It does this very well…. [W]ell written and accessible…. Recommended. (CHOICE)

Impressively thorough. (Book News)

[A]ccessible, informative, and insightful. I highly recommend it and plan to adopt it for use myself in my first year planning class. It will also be a useful text for faculty teaching sophomore history and theory and for citizen planners, plan commissioners, and members of BZA’s who wish to be no ordinary planners. The casual clarity and visual vibrancy of the book exhibit a lifetime of teaching, practice, and personal experience in planning. (Journal of Planning Education and Research)

Format: Paperback
An excellent tour through the world of community planning and economic development. This is the textbook I wish my professor had used when I signed up for that intro course in college!

Staying far away from planning buzzwords, the authors have managed to provide a thorough but highly readable text covering the planning profession, as well as the many areas of specialization included within it. The book is aimed at the college textbook market, but is dense with ideas and examples which make it a great reference for planning commissioners and new professionals in the field to keep nearby.

Tyler and Ward's book teaches the history of urban planning and evolution of planning theory within a practical context. Discussions of classical concepts of city building and urban design blend with practical applications and examples for today's planners.

Topics too often neglected in other planning textbooks are covered here, including planning for rural communities, capital improvements planning, and local economic development strategies. This book also offers the best chapter on zoning and land use/land development regulations that I have found anywhere.

The book was purchased to be donated to a public library in honor of a speaker who is a Community Development specialist. She was very pleased with the book and highly complementary of the selection.
