URBAN STREET DESIGN GUIDE. Island Press, Washington, D.C., 2013. Published in association with National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO). 192 pp. with 359 ills. (189 col.). 28 x 22 cm. LC 2013-946303 ISBN 9781610914949 In English.
Publisher's description: The NACTO Urban Street Design Guide shows how streets of every size can be reimagined and reoriented to prioritize safe driving and transit, biking, walking, and public activity. Unlike older, more conservative engineering manuals, this design guide emphasizes the core principle that urban streets are public places and have a larger role to play in communities than solely being conduits for traffic. The well-illustrated guide offers blueprints of street design from multiple perspectives, from the bird's eye view to granular details. Case studies from around the country clearly show how to implement best practices, as well as provide guidance for customizing design applications to a city's unique needs.
