FTA: The Olmsted Brothers firm, laid out a 50-year master plan in 1917 that called for a garden community at the factory gate. A second 50-year plan was developed in consultation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 1977, 10 years after the first plan had finished.

Interesting, thanks for sharing.
