By: Burden, DanPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2001Description: nr 1773, s. 5-20Subject(s): USA | Residential area | Urban area | Suburbs | Planning | Town planning | Cyclist | Pedestrian | Walking | Public participation | Recommendations | 113Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1773Location: Abstract: Important change is sweeping across villages, towns, and cities worldwide. It is taking place in rural hamlets, middle burgs, and huge metropolises. While some people are just going from foot to mechanical transport for the first time in their civilization's history, others are learning to return to their feet and to build with proper scale and proportion. We will focus on the early steps of returning towns and people to sensible, smart growth and sustainable people-focused transportation and land use practices. I will reflect on what is occurring in both urban and suburban places.
