This Web Book discusses land use issues, the design and planning process, design implementation, and environmental implications of planning and design. The major focus of this material is on site- or project-level site planning and design issues. It reviews the traditional planning and design process, including research and analysis, design development, and implementation. Principles of site planning and design are richly illustrated with appropriate graphics that clearly demonstrate the considerations and interrelationships that are required to bring a physical land use development from concept to reality.
