Urban planner: Macon silent on visual preference survey results

April 28, 2015

Anton Nelessen, a professor of urban planning and design at Rutgers University, conducted the survey, as he has in 167 cities in the United States and many others around the world. Nelessen recalls resistance bordering on hostility to his work in Macon. He heard the words “communist plot” in reference to his efforts. For that reason, he said, he suspected his work in Macon would amount to nothing more than an “interesting exercise.”
