CITIES HAVE DONE LITTLE. Systematic Municipal (training It Nec essary to Create and Maintain Healthful and Attractive Residential Districts—Restrictions Essential to Prevent Exploitation. By J. C. NICHOLS of Kansas City. City iiliiuiiing in almost every phase of its wide modern meaning has taken root in the public conscience. Yet we have thus far done very little as com munities or as municipalities to prop erly create, safeguard and guide the growth of home neighborhoods. Much has been written about the proper regulation and construction of streets for residence property. But the subdividing of land for residential pur poses In practically all American cities is generally left to chance or the direc tion of selfish private Interests. City authorities have to some extent made certain general requirements as to a reasonable continuity and regularity of streets, but little progress has been made toward planning residential sub divisions. A few good residence neighborhood have been provided in almost every city by the ordinary real estate devel opment. The period over which the safeguards in these areas extend is generally of mere nominal duration In pro]Hrtion to the life of the city and covers only a small section. City con trol In residence neighborhoods practi cally ends with the boundary lines of the street and the boulevard. And to day, with only an occasional exception. the individual owner in our residence neighborhoods does whatever he pleases uplm the property which he owns without regard I» the interest of his jy] iKMglilioi'hood or Iiis rumummty. up Oscar Murray arrived home a few days ago from a visit with relatives and friends at Britton often ilie majority of the population, because of the haphazard development AN INVITING NEIGHBORHOOD. of the city, may be found, living In the most unhealthy sections of the town. Thus unconsciously the health and joy of living of many may be daily and unnecessarily sacrificed to presumed commercial needs. Little thought has beeil given to the creation of pleasant healthy residence neighborhoods and the safeguarding of these neighborhoods by the com munity or the city Itself. The fac tory, the railroad, the business house. have first call on locations most desir able for their particular uses'. The remarkable fact is that nearly every one has come to feel that the successive rise and decline of resi dence neighborhoods In our cities an nua voidable and that even the very location of residence sections Is sec ondary to e"ery other Interest of the city. In the lack of proper control of the laying out of residence sections, home owners sustain annually a loss of mil lions of dollars through the decline and shifting of residence neighborhoods. Today the home owner is generally helpless to prevent the erection of an undertaking establishment of a larnv 8ry at his side or the erection of a tall warehouse, cutting off all air and sun shine from Iiis family nnd children. Rigid municipal control should be employed in the exclusion of undesir able commercial uses of liind within the territory set aside for residence purposes. We should not leave the stir rounding of our homes to the selfish private Interests of (he real estate spec ulator. We should not hazard the en vironment and surroundings of our children to the mercenary Interest of the shifting ownerships of surrounding tracts of land. The fronting of resi dences and placing of outbuildings should be so regulated as not to injure surrounding homes nor mar the ap pearance of a neighborhood. Safeguards of this sort should not be confined to the residential sections o( the well to do. Applied to neighbor hoods of workman's cottages, they will prove Just as great a benefit to the community and its health and happi ness. The function of the municipality l? •distantly being applied to new fields. At first It was broadened under the po lice power of the city. Its successful advance, often against bitter opposi tion, foretells the larger use of the right of eminent domain, by whl the municipality for the public good may «tend much further Its control over the creation, development and main tenance of residence property for the irrente«t good to the prp.it st number daughtei "•et.
