If you look in the Course Syllabi section of ArchNet, there are some links to resources dealing with urban design and planning which may be useful to you.

I had a wonderful landscape architecture course with Prof. Douglass Allen, in GaTech. I advise it to everybody. He has a vast bibliography on this matter. His approach to the town planning and urbanism is just great. Reza Sanavandi

Urban planning (urban, city, and town planning) is a technical and political process concerned with the control of the use of land and design of the urban environment, including transportation networks, to guide and ensure the orderly development of settlements and communities. It concerns itself with research and analysis, strategic thinking, architecture, urban design, public consultation, policy recommendations, implementation and management.

Sabia, Given that most of the urban areas in the Americas and particularly those in North America have been built within the past hundred years, therefore much of the urban planning has been directly geared to the use of trains, trams and motor vehicles as the most common methods of transport.

Whereas, many if not most urban areas in "Old World" countries are based upon centuaries of pedestrians, horses and horse-drawn vehicles which makes for "quaint". :)))
