About this Item

167 p. This study [incredibly undated but, from internal evidence, seems to have been published in the mid-1970s], was done under a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and independent of state and local financing. The project was led by the university with the cooperation of the Nebraska State Building Advisory Commission and the State Building Administrator; the Downtown Advisory Committee; and the City of Lincoln, represented by the City-County Planning Commission and the Planning Director. Pointing out the symbolic, historic, and cultural importance of the Capitol Building and its dominance in its urban context, the introduction states, "The premise of this study is that there is a potential for developing the Capitol and its environs into a distinctive and inviting center of human interaction beyond that which has been realized to date." It lists three major shortcomings of the Capitol environs: over-permissive height limits in the area; disregard of the Capitol as a key element in developing the area; and a decline of residential uses and the presence of low intensity non-residential uses has meant a loss of amenities and the gradual development of a "gray zone" of transitional and marginal uses. The report ends with a chapter on proposed state-city development strategies to counter these problems. The book is generously illustrated with black-and-white photographs, drawings, charts, tables, etc. Horizontal octavo (8" x 10"), soft cover, protected in a mylar jacket, as new.
