City planning has experienced rapid growth and change during the past decade and is now occupying an important place in the public eye. Although there have been many reports and magazine articles, as well as books on special phases, there have been few books covering the whole subject. To fill the need for a single volume assembling in readily accessible form the results of various investigations and the latest discussions of important aspects of the subject, this book has been written.
This volume is intended to be of service to those who are studying and teaching city planning and to city officials, particularly to members of zoning or planning commissions. At the same time it is hoped that the book may be helpful to the citizen who is interested in the improvement of his village, town, or city, and is desirous of knowing more about this subject.
With these objects in mind the author has given special emphasis to the elements and principles of the various branches of city planning while considering also things of such general interest as the scope of the work, its importance, its possibilities, and means of accomplishment. He has tried to treat the subject comprehensively and with due regard for the practical, theoretical, and esthetic factors involved. He has endeavored to go deep enough for practical usefulness and high enough to give the reader a sweep of vision and an exercise of his constructive imagination. New as well as old ideas of planning have had the attention of the author, and the views of leaders in the field, whether conservative, liberal, practical, or visionary, have been presented.
Although now and again throughout the text, particularly in those chapters dealing with the historical development of city planning and of housing, the writer has called attention to important developments elsewhere in the world, nevertheless he has endeavored to stress the trends and accomplishments of these movements within the borders of the United States.
These things the author has tried to accomplish by bringing together in concise form much of the material already written upon the subject and by adding results of his own experience in the past several years in teaching and practice and of his observations made during extensive travel both in Europe and in America. The present book is based largely upon notes made by the author in his teaching of a course in city planning. The manuscript has not only been put to the test of such actual use but has been examined by a score or more of nationally known specialists in the various fields discussed in the text.
