Creating Livable Streets, Street Design Guidelines
Title: Creating Livable Streets, Street Design Guidelines

ISBN: 0966247337

From the Publisher:
Originally published in 1997, the updated second edition of this award-winning handbook describes general guidelines that should be considered when designing new streets or upgrading existing streets in any community. The handbook also includes detailed illustrations and photographs of street designs that successfully integrate streets with nearby land uses to enhance safety and promote community livability.
The handbook provides specific tools. Street design elements such as sidewalks, crosswalks, bikeways, street trees, landscaping that separates the sidewalk from the street, street lighting, bus shelters and corner curb extensions provide a safer environment that can slow traffic and encourage walking, bicycling and transit use.
From Builders Booksource: The first in the series by Metro, a Portland, Oregon governmental group. Each book inspires, teaches, and convinces us that we can plan and build better communities. Very cool little books!
