"In the past decade, we have moved railroad tracks and built a new railroad station; we are moving two rivers; and now we plan to move an interstate highway. These were the opening remarks of Tom Deller, associate director of planning for the city of Providence to planners here for the annual meeting of the New England chapter of the American Planning Association. Just the thought of these words is mind-boggling."
