Abstract and Keywords

It provides an overview of what is believed to be consensus thinking concerning what sustainable places are and reviews the generalized principles of sustainable cities. The article highlights the disagreements among planners about the parameters, effects, and implementation strategies necessary. It argues that scholarship and research on sustainable urbanism are still needed to define more specific parameters, to understand and work to offset perverse effects, and to figure out ways to more effectively implement the essential objectives.
