Let's explore texts from the fascinating world of urban planning! We can engage in dialogue around perspectives on an increasingly urbanized global population, ideas in sustainable development and land use, urban design and psychology, transportation, and transformation - the renaissance of neighborhoods and downtowns in America. Maybe we'll even look at the tired old subject of sprawl and the shiny new-ish subject of resilience.

In search of titles for our group, we will explore classic works, consider Jane Jacobs, and also more recent titles from which there are many, many to choose from. We can also consult the yearly Top 10 Books list from Planetizen, a valuable urban planning website. The book choices will be appropriate for those in the profession, and enjoyable (hopefully, or controversial, or inspiring, or...) for the average citizen.

We'll meet for coffee or drinks to compare notes and chat about the read. Our lovely region of San Luis Obispo County, the Central Coast of California, will provide endless context, as will our combined experiences in other places. Cities are shaping our future and citizen engagement is important to planning, so let's get knowledgeable!
