"Lane Kendig is one of planning's most creative thinkers but always with a practical perspective. Here Kendig and colleague Bret Keast provide not only concepts but illustrations, formulas and matrices for achieving and maintaining the character of communities ranging from urban centers to auto-suburban areas to rural hamlets."--Eric Damian Kelly, Professor of Urban Planning, Ball State University, author of "Community Planning" "A real-world perspective on how to think about community character--what it is, how its changed over time, and what a planner can do to make it better. The authors pull together a lifetime of work in an engaging and thoughtful book; they show us the numbers and help us learn from real places--a must for every planner's bookcase."--Michael V. Dyett, founding partner, Dyett & Bhatia, Urban and Regional Planners "Kendig and Keast offer us a guide (not dogma) for understanding community character and for shaping the future form and function of our communities. They frame the elements of community in terms which are useful to the expert and informative to those who are ultimately responsible for resource planning and management--local government officials. This book is an important resource for the professional, but more importantly a guidebook for non-professionals who are the ultimate players in the 'Zoning Game.'"--Charlie Siemon, planning and planning law consultant at Siemon & Larsen "These [with Community Character] are by far the most complete and detailed works dedicated to community character that I have ever come across. That makes these books a valuable addition to any planner's reference collection."--Spacing
