Communities face substantial challenges-a changing climate, a housing crisis, the end of cheap oil, shifting demographics and lifestyles, and substantially declining federal, state, and local revenues. This is a step-by-step guidebook for urban planners and urban designers to implement a "green action plan" for cities small and large as well as private development. The guidebook delineates both sequential and parallel sets of instructions for the creation of comprehensive action plans that encompass all the major elements of sustainability, from land use plans to solid waste to economics.

Andres Duany, along with Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, leads a firm that has designed more than 200 new neighborhoods & community revitalization plans, most notably, Seaside, Florida.
