type of New Town:
> scale of autonomy
Park Forest, Illinois, situated 40 mi. from Chicago, was planned ten years after the Greenbelt towns with the same ideas. Park Forest was one of the first planned communities with a 'regional shopping center' functioning as a hub for the community. Another novelty was the development of rental houses.
In 1968 the HUD approved Park Forest South as a Title IV New Community.
