To the Directors of the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association and the Citizens' Committee:GENTLEMEN:
The purpose of the report herewith submitted is to try to find out the kind of city that Madison should be, to examine the existing city fairly and frankly with a view to discovering its merits, defects and tendencies, and then to consciously plan for the definite steps necessary to realize a practicable ideal. The work is undertaken in the confident belief that Madison may be so developed as to establish a new standard for city making in the United States.
