Description
Prepared by the Task Committee to Prepare a Planning Guide of the Urban Planning and Development Division of ASCE.

Urban Planning Guide discusses planning for maintenance an expansion of the nation's infrastructure—a subject that concerns civil engineers more than any other profession. This Manual focuses on the practical use of planning tools to solve real life problems and provides the reader with a broad overview of the planning process and what factors or issues are of particular concern. The first three chapters deal with planning and the planning process in general, describing the process that any planning study must follow from data collection to implementation. The rest of the book covers urban planning in specific areas including land use, housing, urban transportation, intercity highways, airports, railroads, ports, community services facilities, water resources, parks, wastewater management, solid wastes management, energy, environment, and capital improvement programs.
