YOUR CITY TOMORROW

A discussion of city planning which is both criticism and stimulus, and stresses two factors; firstly, that the planlessness which has conditioned our city planning- lack of it- must stop; secondly, that no planning which does not view the entire city- or community (but is merely a patchwork improvement of certain areas) is valid. From the ideas of garden cities and beautification, to the immediate questions of better housing- what needs to be done and who's to pay for it; the importance of government guidance and support; the proper use of land and the factors of transportation; slums and blighted areas; the conflict between city and state administration; the all-over factor of y. A description is given of Boston's progressive, practical plan, with the hope that all may do likewise. Direct, down to earth, this is good material, interesting in presentation.
