Urban Renewal in DeSoto-Carr: Citizen Participation Comes of Age
Urban Law Annual
This is the story of urban renewal planning in the DeSoto-Carr neighborhood, a hard-core Negro slum in the St. Louis inner city. It is also the story of two federally-financed programs, urban renewal and Model Cities, whose differing guidelines and objectives clashed to provide a confrontation between official and citizen planning in what was certainly one of the first tests of the new citizen power in slum neighborhoods.
