    Geo-environmental evaluation for urban land-use planning

    A city government wants to transform an area currently being used for agricultural production into urban use. My supervisor and I are required to undertake a suitability assessment of this agricultural area for urban use taking into account the geology of the area (geo-environmental evaluation for urban land-use planning).

    Are there successful case studies out there that we can learn from? Any literature sources - articles, books, manuals, etc?

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    The Literature Classic is Ian McHarg's Design with Nature.

    Another is Frederick Steiner's The Living Landscape: An Ecological Approach to Landscape Planning.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
