Using the experiences of Massachusetts and other locales as cases in point, the contributors of these 17 essays concentrate on an approach that works from the grassroots rather than from the top down. They describe flexible, locally based approaches to managing growth in which residents are empowered in local decision making on zoning, water use, land protection, historic preservation, economic diversity, affordable housing, and reclamation of brownfields. They urge activists to keep the unique features of their landscape in mind, build consensus, respect diversity and yet think like a developer as they describe planning, preserving natural resources, enhancing community strengths, and keeping the best for the community. The collection of illustrations from projects is both useful and motivational, and the contributors and editors insure that due attention is paid to sustainable but active development.
