Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
Some books have been written on the subject. They are available through APA or the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Two that come to mind are:
Better Models for Superstores
Better Models for Chain Drug Stores
Fort Collins is very good. There are also a few cities in Texas that have developed quite different but effective approaches. McKinney and Collyville (in the Dallas Metroplex area) are good places to start. McKinney developed a cafeteria-style point system; whereas, Collyville developed a fairly detailed equational model.
