Dissertation:



CITY HISTORY AND CITY PLANNING: The Local Historical Roots of The City Planning Function in Three Cities of the Canadian Prairies.

BY EARL A. LEVIN

Thesis Submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Faculty of Graduate Studies University of Manitoba Winnipeg, Manitoba

(c) June 1993

ABSTRACT (Excerpt) "This study examines the salient features of the physiography and history of the prairie region, the nature of the city planning function, the notion of a prairie regional personality, and the histories of the three subject cities: Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary. It finds that because of constitutional, statutory and historic factors, the common role of city government is administrative rather than policy-making; that the planning function is, in effect, an administrative instrument which simply expresses the city council's politico-economic orientation; and that the "master plan" is an ineffectual planning device."
