At the same time, by extending its authority over surrounding municipalities, the City has also provided for its own growth requirements. Although officially part of the Calgary Regional Planning Commission, Calgary has nevertheless managed to maintain the degree of autonomy necessary to determine its own pattern of urban development. Attention thus tends to be focussed on the complex and detailed organization of political and administrative structures within the City itself - especially where land use planning is concerned." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - two tiny corner creases, light soiling on rear hinge.
