A revolutionary makeover is underway to promote walking and cycling and appeal to a new generation of creative, demanding citizens. Victor Dover, urban designer and co-author of Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns (Wiley, January 2014), is an expert on how to fix our streets, and, in the process, shape enduring cities that people really love.
For 25 years, Dover has been designing walkable, sustainable development. His work spans five continents and ranges from revitalizing historic downtowns to retrofitting suburbia. His projects include Plan El Paso, hailed as “America’s Best Smart Growth Plan,” and the Columbia Pike revitalization plan and code. Victor is a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners. He served as the national chair of the Congress for the New Urbanism from 2010 – 2012.
