Details

Planning initiatives in many regions and communities throughout the country have been directed at changing land use in order to reduce transportation energy use, decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and achieve other economic, social, and environmental benefits. Research has suggested that a shift towards more compact and walkable development patterns could reduce the nation’s transportation energy use and GHG emissions by up to 10% by 2050, playing an important role to complement other technology improvements and travel reduction measures.

While land use planning in the United States is primarily a matter of local (municipal) authority, an increasing number of regional and state initiatives are directed at better coordinating transportation and land use planning. Previous federal government policies have also indirectly influenced land use (e.g., the Interstate Highway System, model subdivision regulations), and in some cases played a direct role, such as through urban renewal programs. In recent years, federal emphasis has shifted towards supporting voluntary and collaborative planning initiatives. This book reviews the state of knowledge on the potential of such initiatives to reduce energy and GHG emissions and deliver other benefits, based on published literature, as well as on Cambridge Systematics’ expertise.
