The Legacy of Livable Streets
Monday, March 22, 2010
7 to 9 pm
San Jose State University
Donald Appleyard's seminal 1981 book Livable Streets revealed the
detrimental effects of automobile traffic on street life and communities.
How has this influential book affected city planning and transport policies
since then? In this talk, hear about contemporary evidence of automobile
impacts and best practices from places where livable streets have become a
priority. With Bruce Appleyard, who is working on the second edition to his
father's book and Joshua Hart, who will discuss how he replicated
Appleyard's study for the first time in Europe.

commissioner, urban designer, and transportation and land use advisor.
Currently Bruce is working as a consultant as he pursues his Ph.D. in City
and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley. Bruce is authoring the Second Edition
of Livable Streets, to be published through Routledge Press.
Joshua Hart has a BA from UC Santa Cruz and worked for the Rails-to-Trails
Conservancy and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition from 2000 to 2005. He
completed his Transport Planning MSc at UWE Bristol in 2008. His
dissertation, Driven to Excess: Impacts of Motor Vehicle Traffic on Quality
of Life in Bristol UK, replicated the famous Appleyard study and was covered
by over 100 media outlets worldwide.
