Sažetak
This paper represents a continuation of the research (from a planer’s point of view) scoped upon the history of making American settlements, planned and erected after the discovery of the New World. Most of the rules for making cities were based upon the European planning from those days ; however, new ideas had arisen along with the need to survey new territories. The first set of rules to regulate the establishment of new settlements was The Laws of Indies from 1573. However, the cornerstone for settling new cities was the Land Ordinance Act of 1785 which introduced a new system in land surveying and city planning. Along with land survey, advancements in infrastructure, namely transportation, contributed largely to the nation’s success. Technological advancements of the Industrial Revolution enabled significant progress in transportation. Improvements to the steam engine and steel manufacturing facilitated the building of the railroad network, while mechanized urban transportation cleared much of the chaos in cities, enabling the city to expand its limits.
