"MetroGreen examines how open-space networks have fared in real scenarios in ten studios of U.S. and Canadian cities paired for comparative analysis - Toronto and Chicago, Calgary and Denver, and Vancouver and Portland among them. Planners, landscape architects, conservationists, and municipal officials will profit from this leading examination of "the tension between the widespread desire for open space and the complexity of controversy over providing and protecting it." MetroGreen is the authoritative source for examining the political and social issues affecting implementation of open-space systems."--BOOK JACKET.
