The city’s potential was clear to civic architect Charles Mulford Robinson, though he acknowledged the city’s previous planning mistakes and ill-conceived design choices, like the grid of wide streets and the “unfortunate spacing” of median “parking strips” on Cascade Avenue. Robinson’s recommendations, reproduced as this book, were formed from his observations described in two reports.
