Book Summary:

Creating Walkable Places: Compact Mixed-Use Solutions has lots of information and strategies relevant for planners, developers, and others seeking to create pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use developments.

In this ULI book, authors Adrienne Schmitz and Jason Scully outline the changes needed in order to encourage development of human-scaled projects, ways to reconfigure old places and plan and design new projects, and approaches to parking.

Creating Walkable Places also describes how to obtain financing for mixed-use, new urbanist, and higher-density projects—the kinds of environments where people want to live, work, play, and shop.

Case studies describe walkable, mixed-use town centers, as well as pedestrian-focused communities in both urban and suburban settings. Case studies include the City Heights Urban Village in San Diego, California; Centennial Lakes in Edina, Minnesota; Birkdale Village in Huntersville, North Carolina; and many others.
