Jeff Speck is a local city planner and architectural designer whose latest book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, is receiving excellent reviews.  In it, Speck focuses on creating areas that people drive to, rather than drive through.  He also delves into the various benefits of creating walkable communities and how to make suburban development more sustainable.

Praise abounds for the book itself but, if you’re looking for a quicker breakdown of 10 Techniques to Making Cities More Walkable, follow the below link to a piece from The Atlantic Cities:
