Jeff Speck - Walkable City Rules: 101 Steps to Making Better Places — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 3, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

A city planner and urban designer, Speck spent ten years as Director of Town Planning at DPZ, work which made him pivotal to the New Urbanism Movement, particularly as an advocate for walkable cities. He’s lectured worldwide, and his 2012 Walkable City definitively made the case for why walkability is the key to thriving cities. In this follow-up, he shows readers exactly what they can do to realize the goals of walkability. A set of practical steps, the book addresses everything from how to sell walkability, invite biking, and make great sidewalks to how to design lanes and allow for adequate parking. Speck includes data and specifications as well as rationales and stories, making the book as inspiring as it is useful.
