About This Directory

Many thanks to Reid Ewing, Professor of City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah, who inspired ChangeLab Solutions' work on this topic. The pedestrian friendly code directory evolved from our contributions to a forthcoming book by Professor Ewing on pedestrian and transit oriented design. The book sets out a firm evidentiary basis for the multitude of benefits from the design elements described in the directory. Thanks also to the many interns who worked on this project: Sandra Padilla, Eric Phillips, Lauren Dunning, and Nicole Schneider.
