Evaluating Urban and Regional Plans gives developers the tools they need to build on the successes and failures of the planning work of the past. Drawing on years of firsthand experience, Mark Seasons highlights the key questions every planner must consider as they shape the future of their communities. Monitoring how our designs affect our regions, he argues, is an essential function of the planning role itself, a necessary safeguard against inefficient and inequitable use of resources. Offering guidelines for new evaluative practices, this book is an invaluable resource for urban planners everywhere.
