Description


The Pacific Northwest is green to the extreme. Yet a day trip can go from pristine wilderness to downtown Seattle, Portland, or Vancouver. How are these commercial and cultural hot spots keeping nature and growth in balance - and what's coming next? Trace the path from forests and fish to bikes and brews as Planning the Pacific Northwest continues the APA Planners Press series on how planning shapes major American cities.
