Long time metropolitan policy analyst, Douglas R. Porter, wrote an article for the November/December 2008 issue of Urban Land Magazine in which he reviewed the challenges of applying urban design principles and practices at a regional scale. Unfortunately, access to this article via the Internet is restricted to members of the Urban Land Institute (ULI). Wider distribution of this article is consistent with ULI’s mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Accordingly, I have posted the Porter article here. See the link below.
