APA's Smart Growth Reader

The Smart Growth Reader is APA's new online, members-only compilation of 60 articles exploring all facets of smart growth.

The term, 'smart growth' is everywhere... "stirring up strong emotions, pro and con, and everyone seems to have a unique take on what it means, where it came from, whether we need it, and how it is carried out. Yet there is no doubt that, however defined, it is signifying a sea change in how we plan America's communities.As an aid to taking in this vast topic, APA has prepared this reader, drawing on articles that have appeared in APA own publications over the past two years: Planning, the PAS Memo, Zoning News, and Land Use Law & Zoning Digest.Intended as a compendium of perspectives on the smart growth, the reader is grouped into seven sections, from Definitions and Critiques to Center Cities."
