Questions for the August Book Club Contest: "Urban Street Design Guide" by NACTO

Because no one won July's contest, the August winner will receive, not only the three publications offered this month, but July's Transit Street Design Guide.

For the August 2017 Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen the Urban Street Design Guide, by the National Association of City Transportation Officials ("NACTO").

With every month's selection, TransportiCA provides three questions, and if you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book.  This month only, we will also provide the winner a copy of the Urban Street Stormwater Guide and the Global Street Design Guide.

The contest questions for the Urban Street Design Guide:

(1) What percentage of public space do streets comprise?

(2) Streets are the _________ of our communities and the ________ of our urban economies.

(3) True or False: Sustainable stormwater management can prove more costly than upgrading large sub-grade pipe networks, and allows for flexible, modular installation.


Lastly, the always amazing Island Press is offering a 20% discount on all NACTO guides!  Use the code "2NACTO" at checkout.

No purchase is necessary, as questions are not taken directly from the publication, but from respective technical information and publicity.  To send-in your responses, submit via TransportiCA's "Contact Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is 23:59, Thursday, 31 August 2017.

Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!
