The National Association of City Transportation Officials, NACTO, is a membership network that provides support and resources for city transportation officials in cities of all sizes.
"Too often we've learned the hard way that the water always wins. This guide sets out a bold vision for how cities can work with water, not against it. It is a blueprint for how to create safe, complete streets that view stormwater as a resource to be integrated into the natural fabric of the cities we want."--Darryl Young, Director, Sustainable Cities, Summit Foundation "This book is full of best practices from the city officials who have been implementing urban street stormwater solutions in the real world, and brings them together in an easy-to-use manual of the caliber of NACTO's earlier guides. It will influence the direction of practice in the same way, giving confidence to those who want to implement these ideas on their own streets."--Janet L. Attarian, Deputy Director, Planning and Development, City of Detroit "The Urban Street Stormwater Guide synthesizes a wealth of local experience into a national resource for sustainable design. The result of a collaboration between transportation and stormwater experts in multiple cities, the guide illustrates how streets of every size can incorporate stormwater management techniques with sustainable, multi-modal mobility. This guide provides the tools necessary to find value in water and to design better cities."--Mami Hara, General Manager/CEO, Seattle Public Utilities
