What's Wrong With America's Streets - And How To Fix Them
According to Goldman, as a plain language companion to the "engineerese" found in the Institute of Transportation Engineers' Designing Walkable Urban Thoroughfares , "The goal of the Principles is to promote development patterns that add value to communities."
"The way to do that, said CNU President John Norquist, is to design streets to play three simultaneous roles: that of a transportation thoroughfare, a commercial marketplace, and a public space. 'Typically, U.S. DOT and State DOTs tend to look at roads only in the dimension of movement, and even in that one dimension, their rural-style forms fail in the city,' Norquist says."
