Partners for Livable Communities


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Partners for Livable Communities is pleased to announce the publication of a new book entitled, The Livable City: Revitalizing Urban Communities. Published by McGraw-Hill, The Livable City addresses a variety of cutting edge issues that are of concern to American communities such as traffic congestion, urban sprawl, disaffected citizens, physical decay, institutional breakdown, and crime. Based on Partners 25 years of experience in fostering collaborative improvements in 300 communities, The Livable City brings together working case studies, examples, and techniques all designed to provide a clear roadmap from urban nightmare to "Most Livable City" status. Included are over sixty Best Practice examples and ten profiles of communities across America, along with insightful commentary from respected urban experts such as Bruce Katz and Bill Fulton. This book is a premier reference for civic leaders, urban planners, community developers, neighborhood planning groups, and active citizens in this country and abroad who seek to understand the concept of "livability" and then initiate change. The Livable City is available through Partners' bookstore by calling (202) 887-5990.
