“Walkable City” Book Discussion at APA Utah Fall Conference 22

September 9, 2022, in Lehi, Utah


On September 9, 2022, APA Utah will host a lunchtime discussion of Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time by Jeff Speck during Fall Conference 22 in Lehi, Utah.

Walkable City, which was published in 2012 and became the best-selling city-planning book in 2013 and 2014, was described by Planetizen as:

“With intellectual cunning and great prose, Jeff Speck diagnoses the disconnect between what planners know about how to make cities livable, and what most of America’s small and midsized cities are or (mostly) aren’t doing to encourage ‘wealth, health, and sustainability.’ According to Speck, walkability is the one issue around which the livability and vitality of cities depends. ‘Get walkability right,’ he says, ‘and so much of the rest will follow.’ To that end, Speck outlines ten essential ‘steps’ for creating walkability, and ushering in ‘a new era of street life in America.’”

If you have been waiting for the motivation to read this urban planning classic, now is the time! Walkable City is widely and affordably available in print, electronic, and audio formats from your local bookstore, library, or online.
