Pace of Life and Quality of Life: The Slow City Charter
Type    Book Section
Author    Heike Mayer
Author    Paul L. Knox
Abstract    This chapter introduces the Slow City movement and presents case studies of Italian, German, and British towns. The Slow City movement – sometimes also called Città Slow or Città Lente – began in October 1999 when four Italian towns started to apply the ideas of Slow Food to urban planning. Since then, more than 77 cities have joined and are committed to implementing a charter and adhere to a 54-point criteria list. The criteria represent a unique community quality-of-life indicator system that addresses issues of environmental protection and sustainable urban development, urban design and form, the support of local products, and educational awareness. The Slow City charter forms the philosophical basis for a set of action-oriented indicators. Member towns are obliged to pursue local projects that  protect local traditions and cultures, contribute to a relaxed pace of life, create conviviality and hospitality, and promote a unique sense of place and local distinctiveness. We describe the Slow City Movement approach to indicator systems that strives for broad sustainability and place-making goals and deep commitments to policy action.

The Compact City: Just or Just Compact? A Preliminary Analysis
Type    Journal Article
Author    Elizabeth Burton
Abstract    The aim of the research described in this paper is to examine the validity of the claims that higher-density urban form promotes social equity–that is, promotes benefits for the life-chances of low-income groups. Overall, the evidence suggests that, for medium-sized English cities, higher urban densities may be positive for some aspects of social equity and negative for others. More specifically, likely benefits include improved public transport, reduced social segregation and better access to facilities, while the main problems are likely to be reduced living space and a lack of affordable housing. Investigations of different aspects of density show that the cities that most support social equity appear to be those that have a large proportion of high-density housing.

The eco-city: ten key transport and planning dimensions for sustainable city development

Type    Journal Article
Author    Jeffrey R Kenworthy
Abstract    Making existing cities and new urban development more ecologically based and liveable is an urgent priority in the global push for sustainability. This paper discusses ten critical responses to this issue and summarizes them in a simple conceptual model that places the nexus between transport and urban form at the heart of developing an eco-city. This involves compact, mixed-use urban form, well-defined higher-density, human-oriented centres, priority to the development of superior public transport systems and conditions for non-motorized modes, with minimal road capacity increases, and protection of the city’s natural areas and food-producing capacity. These factors form the framework in which everything else is embedded and must operate, and if they are not addressed only marginal changes in urban sustainability can be made. Within this framework, environmental technologies need to be extensively applied. Economic growth needs to emphasize creativity and innovation and to strengthen the environmental, social and cultural amenities of the city. The public realm throughout the city needs to be of a high quality, and sustainable urban design principles need to be applied in all urban development. All these dimensions need to operate within two key processes involving vision-oriented and reformist thinking and a strong, community-oriented, democratic sustainability framework for decision-making.

Analysis of Lifestyle Choices: Neighborhood Type, Travel Patterns, and Activity Participation

Type    Journal Article
Author    Kevin Krizek
Author    Paul Waddell
Abstract    Activity-based travel modeling has begun to make significant progress toward a more behavioral framework for simulating household travel behavior. A significant challenge remains in the need to address the interaction of daily activity and travel patterns with longer-term household choices of vehicle ownership, residential location, and employment location. The choices often depend on one another and jointly define the lifestyle of the household. These choices are likely to evolve over the course of the life cycle as households are formed; as children are born, raised, and ultimately depart to form their own  households; and as retirement and old age change patterns of residence, work, and travel. A framework is developed for analyzing household choices relating to three dimensions of lifestyle: travel patterns (including vehicle ownership), activity participation, and residential location (neighborhood type). With cluster analysis on data from the Puget Sound Transportation Panel, nine classifications of lifestyle are uncovered. These clusters demonstrate empirically how decisions of residential location reinforce and affect daily decisions related to travel patterns and activity participation. The applicability of these lifestyle clusters for land use transportation planning is discussed.

Sustainable Urban Forms: Their Typologies, Models, and Concepts
Type    Journal Article
Author    Yosef Rafeq Jabareen
Abstract    This article identifies sustainable urban forms and their design concepts. In addition, it addresses the question of whether certain urban forms contribute more than others to sustainability. A thematic analysis has been used to coop with the vast body of sustainable development and environmental planning literature. The analysis identifies seven design concepts related to sustainable urban forms: compactness, sustainable transport, density, mixed land uses, diversity, passive solar design, and greening. Moreover, it identifies four types of sustainable urban forms: the neotraditional development, the urban containment, the compact city, and the eco-city. Finally, this article proposes a Matrix of Sustainable Urban Form to help planners in assessing the contribution of different urban forms to sustainability.
