CAN LAND USE MANAGEMENT REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION FOR TRANSPORTATION

The author offers a few empirical observations and deductive propositions. In transporting people in cities there are two major ways to save energy: a more efficient use of vehicles is one; restructuring urban patterns in order to reduce the number of miles people need to travel is another. If land use management can be applied to the problem of energy conservation, such as by changes in the relative location of homes, jobs, recreational amenities, etc., so as to minimize the distances people would normally have to travel much should be accomplished. He discusses the feasibility of these methods.
