Synopsis of A Guide to Planning for Community Character

This follow-up volume A Guide to Planning for Community Character addresses actual designs in the three general classes of communities set forth in Kendig's framework-urban, sub-urban, and rural. The practical approaches of this volume are intended to allow designers to succeed in designing communities "with the character that citizens actually want."  Kendig also provides a guide for incorporating community character into the comprehensive plan for a community. In addition, this book shows how to use community character in planning and zoning as a way of making communities more sustainable. All examples in the volume are designed to meet real-world challenges. They show how to design a community so that the desired character is actually achieved in the built result. The book also provides useful tools for analyzing or measuring relevant design features.
