Urban renewal was designed to clean up and rebuild our deteriorating American cities. In the 1950s clearance and new construction were emphasized. In the 1960s attention turned to rehabilitation. By 1989 the program was mostly forgotten, but it left an indelible mark on the landscapes of the cities. Martin and Goddard trace the history of urban renewal in Minneapolis and St. Paul, looking at both downtown and neighborhood projects. They document the social and political processes that guided local renewal decisions, demonstrating that urban renewal in the Twin Cities was substantially different from elsewhere.
