REVIEW: Planning Chicago

Fall 2014, Vol. 39, No. 2

Abstract: Authors D. Bradford Hunt, Ph.D., and Jon B. DeVries, CRE, discuss the history of planning for Chicago, and show where opportunities may be missed because the city no longer plans on a regional scale—but much more so on a political scale. Reviewer Barton DeLacy calls this book a “seminal text,” and recommends it as an example of how “planning done properly and in a comprehensive manner” might be the best tool for resolving Chicago’s planning conflicts.
