Product Description
by Joseph P. Schwieterman, Ph.D. and Martin E. Toth

Learn how communities in metropolitan Chicago have made significant and innovative contributions to comprehensive planning, zoning, and other forms of suburban development control. By reviewing the planning initiatives and zoning ordinances of more than 75 suburban communities, authors Schwieterman and Toth provide a broad perspective on the strategies that municipal governments have used to manage economic development. Geographic analysis, maps, photographs, and drawings are used to illustrate these strategies. The book specifically reviews the efforts of village and city governments to improve the attractiveness of retail strips, the operation of home-based businesses, the quality of day-care centers, the appearance of signs and billboards, the sustainability of development, and other critical areas of suburban governance.

"I am recommending this book to my staff. It's an up-to-date reference on key issues facing city planners," says Nancy Pekarek, city planner, Valparaiso, Indiana.
