Abstract

American city planning has evolved from a local orientation and bias toward physical determinism and political aloofness to a national remedy for the social and economic deprivations of urban life. This broadened concern has required the city planner to become integrated into the governmental process of decision-making and as a consequence, has necessitated a revision in traditional planning thought* This thesis demonstrates, by means of two case studies of local planner involvement in politically sensitive issues, that even within a most unnatural planning environment, as in Rockford, Illinois, the city planner can succeed at instilling an Implied rationality into the daily operation of local government.
