Description: This is a manual for planners writing ordinances. It advocates a 'managed growth' philosophy compatible with the design aspects of neighborhood structure.

Assessment: This makes an argument for compact, traditional development, but is not much concerned with design. (e.g. one diagram illustrates housing across a density spectrum - but all are conventional suburban development).
