This is pretty amazing to watch. It strikes me as one of those old movies they played in school warning us of Propaganda. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think this film is propaganda – just reminds me of it. I think there was and there is still is legitimate concern with land use.
What I found interesting here is the idea of a “Regional Authority” to govern the development of the region would help. Maybe it has, but to me it seems like it has opened up more problems and hasn’t seemed to have solved the issue it was intended to. In the Twin Cities that regional authority is the Metropolitan Council.
What’s your take on this? Have we made any progress since 1959? Have we gone backwards? Is the Regional Authority the answer to these issues? Maybe it is time we look at that…
