November's book selection is "Charter of the New Urbanism." This book is one of the most important books on smart growth, filled with descriptions of how of the various elements of planning should function at different scales, from the Region to the Building.
The purpose of the book club is to promote education and encourage debate among community members who wish to discuss land use and smart growth initiatives in the Lehigh Valley. The Smart Growth Book Club hopes to inspire local citizens into action in their communities and the region. RenewLV Smart Growth Book Club meetings will be held on the third Thursday of every other month. Book discussion members are welcome to come early to enjoy original folk music performed by Scott Paul from 6 to 7 p.m.
When: Thursday, Nov. 16
Where: Home of Joyce Marin, co-chair of RenewLV, at 500 Chestnut Street, Emmaus
