A GUIDE FOR REDUCING AIR POLLUTION THROUGH URBAN PLANNING

URBAN PLANNING IS THE PROCESS OF GUIDING THE GROWTH AND CHANGE OF CITIES. ALTHOUGH URBAN PLANNING ENCOMPASSES MANY DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES AND KINDS OF ACTIVITIES, THE STUDY EMPHASIZES ONLY TWO ASPECTS: LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION PLANNING. THE REPORT IS DESIGNED TO HELP PLANNERS UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP OF AIR QUALITY TO LAND USE PATTERNS AND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. SPECIFICALLY, TWO PURPOSES ARE TO INDICATE THE AIR POLLUTION EFFECTS OF VARIOUS PLANNING STRATEGIES, AND TO SUGGEST HOW LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION PLANNING CAN BE USED DIRECTLY TO CONTROL AIR POLLUTION. EXISTING KNOWLEDGE IN LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION POLICIES ARE SUMMARIZED. ALSO, THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS THAT REQUIRE ASSESSMENT OF THE AIR POLLUTION IMPACT OF LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION PATTERNS ARE OUTLINED. /AUTHOR/
