Summary "By examining and explaining the particular legal issues that accompany urbanist design and sustainable development, this timely book shows urban planners, developers, designers, and architects how to make the law work for them in planning and executing sustainable urban projects. Written by experienced attorneys, this book thoroughly explains the practical implications of the current law and legal theories surrounding urbanism and sustainability, and forecasts its future directions." "Collectively, the authors have handled every aspect of urbanist law. The two lead authors, Daniel K. Slone and Doris S. Goldstein, are attorneys who are pioneers in the field, having worked with architects, planners, city officials, and developers at the vanguard of urban planning and sustainability. Their comments and firsthand experience, interspersed throughout the book, help illuminate how the law governs day-to-day planning and development activities."--BOOK JACKET.
