The title of this book is a fine indicator of its essential theme, for this is the story of how the prevailing images of Omaha determined the objectives of city planning. From 1945 to 1973, Omaha's economy changed fundamentally, and this reality eventually changed how local decision- makers perceived their community. These new perceptions finally brought a new orientation in planning for the heart of the city.
